Patchwork in this one is made from scraps of lightweight denims, left
over from when my DGKs were toddlers.

Thanks, Juno.  I just about live in jeans, so it would be accurate to
say I love denims too.  :)

But but but...I already packed it up with all my stuff.  You wouldn't
want me to have to undo all this, would you?...Wallet, keys, comb,
lipstick. In the inside pockets: a pad of post-its, two pens, lockbox
key, retractable measuring tape, band-aids, chapstick, tiny tube of hand
lotion, artificial tears, nail clippers, nail file, cough drops, dental
floss, needle and safety pins.

Which makes me wonder: what do y'all consider necessary in your everyday
purse?

For many years I carried a special purse with built-in holster and place
for handcuffs, plus all the other usual purse stuff.  The purses
themselves are heavy leather, or in one case, the fabric of which fire
hoses is made, plus heavy metal hardware.  The operative word here being
"heavy."  So, since I no longer "pack" I have taken to smaller and
lighter bags, especially as age creeps up on me, and a heavy purse makes
me ache.  My latest is a tiny bag with room for cash, cards, cell phone,
a small magnifying glass, tube of lip gloss, a few bandaids, hand
cleaner....that's about it.  I gave up the wallet since the purse has
pockets for driver's license and credit/debit cards.  I don't write
checks.  My credit union writes the checks to pay the bills, and the
service is free.  I have a checkbook at home for the other items - my
husband's piano lessons, the handyman's bills.  Shopping is paid by
debit, credit, or cash.

I quit carrying my Swiss Army knife, and now have a Bernina tool that is
similar, but neither goes with me in the purse.  I do carry a tiny
flashlight on my keys.

Doreen that's just beautiful!!  Like Juno, I love denim too, which
reminds me I need to make a new band for my denim watch...the old one is
looking a bit shabby.

How nice of you to say!  I owe it to lots and lots (and lots and lots

Thanks, Emily.  I think it'll kind of look OK with most of my
errand-running clothes, not that I'm any model of fashion or anything,
but one I made previously was not as versatile.

Love it. What pattern did you use? Or are you clever and make up your own?

The pattern is Towne Purse, from Lazy Girl Designs.  I've used two LGDs
patterns and think the directions are clear and well written, although
after making the first of six (so far) I tweaked a few steps, as we
invariably do.  :)

That is amazingly beautiful. Darn you, now you have put more recycling
ideas into my head. Must make purse. Must make purse. Must make purse :)
