One of the ladies from church said she needed a new purse and would love for me to make her one---BUT she liked a zippered divider. You guessed it. I had never made one like that. So, I decided to try and see if I could do it and I did!!!

I was very pleased with the way the bag turned out.

I added pink"leather" handles and used Chocolate Lollipop fabrics from Westminster.

I put the divided pocket with a pink zipper in the middle and slip in pockets on both sides of the lining. I also used a magnetic closure.

This purse would be cute wider and shorter too.

  1. I have a friend that wants a bag with a divider, not zippered. Would I just make a panel like the pockets and lay it between the lining layers? Would it be too tight that way? Should I fold it a bit before sewing it then it would have more give to it?
