my creative space: planning
This week I'm continuing on my mission to sort out my surrounds a little better. I've turned my attention to my handbag which if you're a mum you would know that these little babies (the handbag, not the kids) can get overloaded with all sorts of "handy-to-haves".
Mobile (or cell), purse, notebook, pens, pencils, hand sanitiser, mints, gloss, bills, comb, mirror, keys, receipts... and the list goes on. Whenever I reach in to find what I'm looking for I can never seem to find it. Doesn't matter what it is, it seems to disappear into a black hole. Kinda like one of those magic bags with multiple compartments, but nowhere near as cool or functional.
So I've been crafting up a sketch for a handbag organiser which can house all those odds and ends in one handy handbag sized tote. It will be a compact A5 size with two fasteners which attach to the front "cover"of the organiser. Inside there will be a zippered document holder on one side and a built-in pencil case, vinyl receipt pouch and a notebook holder on the other side. Everything I need to keep my bag more civilised. Now to pick some cute fabrics.
