so i love the gigantic purse for work, but it is so large that little items tend to get lost in there. i just bought a 16GB card for my new camera and in the short few weeks that i've had it, i've been completely convinced that i lost it at least 3 times. i decided it was time to make a bag for that and my backup memory stick so that i can stop the panic attacks only to discover 3 days later that it was stuck in my shoe (true story, btw).
i made the Key Keeper Coin Purse from Style Stitches. i used little bits of fat quarters. it hardly uses any fabric at all.
one error i made was i cut out and interfaced the pocket and then completely forgot to baste it to the lining before putting the bag together. then again, i doubt i'd use a pocket on a bag this small so i don't really miss it. the instructions were pretty easy to follow. i don't love the way that AB does zipper installation so i might sub another method next time.
it's little and cute and i made it in a stand-out fabric so that i can find it easily. yay, no more bits and bobbles getting lost in my purse!
