DIY Zipped Purse

My name is Gemma and I am a sick and twisted lover of that sweet holiday run-up time, during which you prep and organise your entire trip, plan your packing essentials, plot your route and make a big old list (to shelter and protect the 16 other smaller lists). Many people I have talked to about this generally HATE the 'stress' that leads up to your summer vaycay, all that unnecessary anxiety of 'do I have everything?', 'what weather do I pack for?', insurance, travel money, baggage allowance etc etc etc... but this is something I revel in. A bit weird, right? I can't be entirely alone with this...


I'm at the two and a half week point before we jet off to Canada (where there is currently snow on the ground still!) and I am getting my freak on with checking things off my master list and one of the items I had yet to purchase was some kind of hand baggage organisation; a purse of some kind, big enough to keep my travel essentials safe and in one place inside my on-board bag and easy to retrieve whilst on the go. Step forward this super quick and easy DIY zipper pouch tutorial by crafty blog Lil' Luna!

This simple DIY took me about half an hour from start to finish and I was so pleased with the results I whipped up a second purse immediately after!


This uses a tiny amount of fabric (perfect for busting your fabric stash!) and can be made to any size you need and of course in any colour/ patterned fabric your sparkly heart desires. It is fully lined and fitted with a zip which makes it nice and secure for all your on the go treasures.


Here are some of the ways I intend to use my (ever growing collection of) handmade zipped purses:

The gorgeous dotty fabric was a cheeky purchase I made from the off-cuts basket in one of my favourite places to shop for sewing supplies Guthrie & Ghani in Moseley village, Birmingham and the zips I picked up somewhere long ago! I highly recommend you give this fun tutorial a whiz, being sure to mooch through the heaps of creative posts on her blog or even have a browse round pinterest for further ideas and inspiration!


A great DIY to use up left-over materials and bright, handy organiser for life on the go. I now plan to make a tiny one to hold my Canadian dollars and one big enough for my kindle!
