So this week I dove right in and made an organizer for my purse. I didn't follow a pattern and it isn't an insert, so this might not be very helpful for you if you wanted to make either of those. I, instead, made a shell of my purse, gave it pockets, and attached it to the inside of my purse using Stitch Witchery.
First, I measured the inside of my purse. It was made of 5 panels of fabric. I measured them individually and cut them out in my fabric, with an extra 1/2 inch to allow for seams.
Then I cut out a strip of fabric about the depth that I wanted my pockets to be.
I layer the strip on each panel and pinned it where I wanted to create a pocket. I sewed a seam along each "pocket".
I then attached all of the panels together, so that it looked like the inside of a purse.
After that, I hemmed the top edge to give it a finished look.
I was ready to insert it into my purse. Because my purse had no pockets, I just too the stitch witchery and ironed it in on the bottom, and along the top, to adhere it to the inside of my purse.
Tada!! That's it.
It was a very simple sewing project, and it gave an old purse new life!
