Another Orange Purse

I finished this purse on Sunday night but work and a family crisis reared their time-sucking heads and I only managed to get photos today.

This is the Two-Zip Hipster purse by Erin Erickson of The Dog Under My Desk blog.

There is a zippered pocket on the outside and a top zipper closing the main compartment.

A slide in pocket on the outside (kindle or Ipad size) AND a double pocket (smarty pants phone) on the inside.
I love all the pockets.

The adjustable strap allows you to wear it from your shoulder or cross-body style.
This pattern with incredible detailed instructions was a breeze to sew - even the almost complicated sewing in of the top zipper. Very good instructions. I had zero quibbles about Erin's excellent instructions.

I'm looking at this photo thinking I could embroider something random across the black band. What do you think?

Put a bird on it . . .

My other orange purse utilizing this lovely Ikea bird fabric is here.


  1. What a smart looking bag! Perfect for fall too. All those pockets are sure to come in handy!

  2. I like a bag with lots of pockets and compartments too. Yours looks really nice. Maybe some twining vines or leaves or little flowers on the black band? It might be hard to embroider now that it's all sewn up though. I'll bet you've got some nice old pins or brooches lying about that would look good too.


I love comments. My heart goes pitter-patter every time there is a new one.
