A woman simply has to have a purse. We just can’t do without it! There are certain things we must have on us at all times, including a wallet, cosmetics and photos. Where do we keep them? In the purse, of course! Yes, a purse is one of the most useful things ever invented for a woman, but even still, it isn’t flawless. There’s one issue almost every purse has and that is the fact that you have to dig to the bottom for small things that get lost in the crowd. But, when you make helpful purse loops you’ll never fumble through your pocketbook again!
Have you ever had to dump out the contents of your purse to find a small thing inside which you can’t seem to locate? You know you have! That won’t happen to you when you use a simplistic loop inside your purse for holding things like lipstick, mascara, eyeliner and similar objects. After you make one purse loop and try it out you’ll want one or two inside every purse you own!
To create the loop itself simply cut a small piece of fabric. The tiny piece only serves to hold opposing Velcro pieces, which in turn, hold your cosmetics or other items inside your pocketbook. The fabric piece can be as small as an inch by an inch. Cut a Velcro rectangle, and its opposing piece, and sew them onto the small piece of fabric. The Velcro and the fabric should be all the same width but the Velcro should be longer than the cloth piece. To get an idea of how long to cut the Velcro simply wrap it around a lipstick, mascara or other object. When you’re finished you should have a slender rectangle which features Velcro at each end.
Depending upon the type of purse you have it might be possible to sew the loop inside without the stitches being noticed on the outside. Many purses have a visible seam inside, or have a fabric exterior, that can help conceal the sewing of the purse loop. If this is true of the purse that you are using simply position the loop in a convenient place, like an inside seam, and sew it on.
If the purse you’re carrying isn’t sewing machine-friendly, use fabric glue to attach it. Found at most craft and fabric stores the glue works well on cloth, vinyl, leather and other types. Just apply a dab of the glue on the cloth piece of the loop, on the backside, and press it against the inside wall of the purse. Allow it to dry completely before using the purse loop.
Add as many loops inside the pocketbook as you’d like. They’re useful for holding not only cosmetics but jewelry, your keys and more. Once you start using the loops, and you no longer have to fumble for small things inside your purse, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!
