Purse Organizer/Coupon Holder: Unique Construction

    I enJOY making these, because of how they "turn out" like magic.  The way you lay the fabrics together is a unique process to other ways I've seen.     
     This is a revised tutorial from one I wrote in 2012 as my very
first guest post which was for Whimsy Couture.
  That post is now hard to find, so I'm reposting here, because I think you might like to try out this new technique.


You will need 4 pieces of fabric:

It will take less time to sew than to pick out fabrics and cut.
Just follow this picture labeled tutorial.

Now the magic happens. This "turns" into a coupon holder.

 Turn it over and see the 2 pockets.

 Three organizers together can help keep all those membership cards, a pack of batteries for hearing aids, receipts & all those other small items from floating around in your purse.
These are hand size which makes them easy to move from one purse to another.

Whimsy Couture has been revised and offers several free tutorials and free patterns.

  7. Thank you for this tutorial. Missed it the first time round. I'd like to try it, it's so clever! I took the liberty of linking to this post on a French quilters forum. I hope you don't mind. If you do, let me know, I'll remove the link.

    1. Beatrice, I don't mind at all. I take it as a compliment that you wanted to share this tutorial. Thank-you.

  8. Thank you for many fab sewing tutorials :)

  9. This is such a fabulous idea, Joy and would definitely save time when changing handbags, not to mention losing small things in the bottom of large bags.
