Getting Organized!

I have been carrying around a slouchy medium size shoulder bag. I carry everything in it from kid toys to makeup but there are no pockets. Everything is in a big messy pile at the bottom, that I have to sort through before reaching what I need.
So I made a...
I loved Sweetbriar Studio's pattern! It is super easy! I love the simplicity of the design and it is the perfect fit for any medium size bag. I only made a few changes.
Zippered pockets come in handy for thing you don't want people to see when opening your bag.
I wanted to be able to pick up the organizer and transfer it to another purse easily. If you look into my closet I have all of the Sew Spoiled prototypes and bags that I have made over the years. Really I should get rid of some of them. 
 I have never topstitched the edges of a bag before but I like the look and it made the organizer stand up. I am going to make another Ladybug Shoulder Bag and this is perfect for that medium size bag.

Yes, this is more like it. Now I can find my sunglasses, wallet, gum, etc. in seconds!
