My favourite purse for travel was looking a little worse for wear, and I decided to replace it - easier said than done! I finally found a pattern I liked, called Trifecta from Studio Kat Designs.
My outer fabric is a sandy beach print, with a tan interior and green accents. I chose to add the pocket to the front - handy for keys, pen etc.
It has a magnetic closure, and two large pouch areas, with a centre zippered area as well.
I chose to add the "core insert" into the zippered area, with space for cards on the side - probably my library card, etc. I made the zippered core, so that I'll have another safe place to stash stuff!
With the purse opened up, you can see all the different areas to stow items. I like to be organized. It is very versatile for a smaller purse (9" x 10" x 5").
The pattern was interesting to make, and the instructions were fairly easy to follow. I'll make this again, but with a little more creativity next time. I also plan to find a "purse zipper" as well - much better than the regular one that I used, as it would have two zipper pulls, closing in the centre of the purse instead of at one side.
