This has actually been a slow brewing project. It started with me wanting a proper enclosure for female-only accessories so I wouldn't have to hide everything in my palm when I go to the bathroom at work. So yesterday I checked to see exactly what's in my bag.
Cue bag (I love this bag):
Decide what the minimum necessary items are:
OK the yellow pills aren't really necessary. I use them maybe once a year? They're for your tummy - I eat a lot of spicy food. :)
Then arrange everything in neat piles:
Decide you need 3 holders. Make one:
And then stop because you're too annoyed with self at what it turned out like. Although the kitty on the zipper is cute.
Yes yes. I messed up the inside. Had to hand stitch the holes... hand stitched so poorly that the zipper occasionally catches the lining. I suck. Booh. You'd think after making several of these last year I'd learn. But nooooo. Anyway. I fixed one of the problems - the objects which are rarely used but sorely missed if they're not in the bag (motion sickness bracelets for example) - you might recognize the motion sickness pouch I make a few months ago.
I need to make at least one more for holding the afore mentioned pads & such. I'd like it to have a zipper on 3 sides, an outer pocket (for the lime-coloured daily ones) and the inside needs to be separated in two. I think I can make it in the same corduroy and I still have some of that lace for decoration. Oh my that corduroy went far didn't it! That's if I don't screw it up again of course.
I might make a third one for pen/lip gloss etc but not sure - almost pushing it. Even considering that I make it, I will need to move an impressive 6 items from one bag to another:
2. eyeglass case
3. rarely used items pouch
4. pads pouch
5. random-other-implements pouch
6. "ideas" notebook
Not being a person who changes their bags that often, I wonder if 6 items to track are the norm or not. Seems like a lot, but I can't reasonably break it down even further without this becoming somewhat ridiculous.
