Scallop Purse Organizer

Scallop Bag Monogrammed
I am always on the look out for adorable accessories to monogram. Recently, I purchased this faux leather scallop purse for Sew For Less. The monogram font I used is Fish Tail by Herrington Design. I do like it but there is not a closure for the top of the bag, no magnet clasp or zipper. So what do you do, create an organizer with a zipper closure.
Zipped up Organizer
You can do this with any purse, first measure the outside of the purse. Measure the height, width, depth of the purse. Use those measurements for the pieces for your organizer. When you sew them together using a 1/2" seam allowance, this creates a smaller bag that will fit inside the bag comfortably. The organizer will be 1" smaller in height, width and depth. Usually, I do not add a zipper but knowing that I needed a closure for this tote I added it to the top of the organizer.
Purse Organizer
Elastic along the top of the slip pockets help keep the contents inside pockets, along the sides of the bag so I can use the bottom for larger items. I love how an organizer makes your tote more user friendly.
