Binder Purse

Sounds different, right? Thats what I thought too! I had a customer ask me to make her one, so that she could use it when she was doing the extreme coupon thing!
So what is it really? A binder cover with purse straps so you can easily carry it! It has velcro tabs on the side to keep it from opening, and to keep all your items from falling out. Add a few pockets and it is extremely useful!
Are they fun to make? Somewhat! I love picking out the fabrics and customizing them to the customers needs. Do they take a while? Um...Yeah!
I made a tester one, just to get all the kinks out! I am keeping it for my self. I have all of my pdf patterns in it, notebook paper for making lists, and paper for doodleing!
I really love the inside of the front cover. It has 3 velcro pockets. Just to make sure nothing falls out! The back inside cover, has a pocket for paper and 3 pen slot pocket. There is one pocket on the outside and it comes in pretty handy too.
This order also had a custom pencil pouch added to it! This was the relaxing part of the sewing. I love how it came out. I used this tutorial for the measurments. I also added a detachable wrist strap!
I am thinking about making a pattern to sell from this design. I need to make a few more so I can get all the measuremnts and pattern peices ready. In the mean time and for practice I am going to be doing a tutorial on the blog for a Jewelry Roll! That will be in about 2 weeks! I have never done a tutorial before, so if anyone has any tips, I would love to hear them!

I really need to get posting! Sorry for the lack of posts, but I do have a sale going on that I would like to share with you.

We will be leaving in about a week and will be gone for 8 weeks. I really don't want to close my ETSY shop or deactivate the listings, it would be lots better if it was just empty. So to get it there, I have decided to have a 40% off sale!

Use coupon code VACATION.
