I created a purse organizer because I like to change purses.  I got the idea from here:  purseket.com
  • Basically I took a rectangle of fabric, and sewed the right sides together, leaving an opening for me to turn it right-side-out.
  • Then I used iron-on reinforcing stuff (what's it called again?) and ironed it to one half of the fabric.  
  • I turned the thing right-side out and ironed it nice and flat so the reinforcing stuff would stiffen the whole thing.
  • Next I folded it not quite in half length-wise and sewed the two short ends together to form a pocket.
  • I turned that inside out.
  • Finally, I sewed the pocket in places so it made a bunch of smaller pockets.  The idea here is that the thing will hold all your stuff and make it easy to get to and make it easy if you want to switch to a different purse.
 
Well, my little organizer sort of sucks.  I think it's too big for my purse or something.  But, someone else far craftier and experienced than I can surely demonstrate how this could be made better.  Here's a sort of demo below.

I just went to that website and watched the little video demonstrating how it works. Genius!!! I will definitely try this soon. Maybe using a stiffer fabric would work better, like denim? fun fun...

Wow! What a great idea! I'm always digging around and screaming that my purse isn't a black hole 'cause I can SEE the bottom! I switch purses a lot and I'm going to have to do this! Thanks for the tute and the site!

newbibeader, LOVE the fabric! Where did you get it?  Is it home dec or canvas-like fabric? 

I have so many bags that I am definitely going to do this.....
