I have been looking for a little handbag that I can take with me on holiday that can store the bare essentials with the rest of my paraphernalia going into a backpack. I ended up buying this lovely little bag which I realised at the time was a little impractical but I couldn’t resist:
The problem is that there is nowhere to really store a small fold up brush and a lipstick. I can slip my mobile phone into one of the side pockets so that’s not too bad. I can put the items in one of the sleeves at the back and the bag closes fine which is okay in the evening when I seldom open my bag but a nightmare during the day, if I am doing shopping and need to pay for items.
So, decided to make a little bag that could attach to this main bag. I dug out some fabric that I printed a while back and set out making this little bag:
Well, it is proving to be highly successful! It’s big enough to hold a passport and my boarding pass plus a fold-up brush and a lipstick so I have those in a convenient and accessible area. When I am shopping, I can put my mobile phone in it so I can get to it quickly and when I am out sightseeing my camera fits into it beautifully and I am happy to put the rest of the items in my backpack.
