Prompt #29 from The Book of Me – What sort of purse do I carry and what is in it?
I usually carry this bag with me. I made it from scraps of mud cloth several years ago. It’s lined with some navy blue fabric I had on hand but it should have been lined with black. There is plenty of room for the items below, plus my camera, a notebook, a book or whatever else I need at the time.
- Altoids case – actually has various pills in case I get caught out at dinner time without them.
- Bimah case with drivers license, debit card, cash.
- Two ball point pins.
- A pencil from Ikea.
- A dime.
- A striped case holding my checkbook and various papers.
- A glass case for my distance glasses.
- A glass case for some extra reading glasses.
- My keys with a reindeer horn thing from Norway and the car open/closer.
- My cell phone.
I usually carry this bag with these things in them. I keep meaning to make a very small, under my coat/jacket/shawl bag just large enough for cell phone, keys and license. Unfortunately, I don’t remember until I’m on my way out the door.

What a tidy handbag you have Kristin! I no longer carry masses of stuff but still more than this. I love the bag that you made and I was tickled to see the little Bima purse in there!
Sometimes I do have a baggy with candied ginger in it or an apple, but I just dumped out what was in there and it was pretty clean. I thought you would enjoy seeing that little Bima there.
Wow! Your purse is way neater than mine. You’ve just inspired me to clean mine out. 🙂
I had no idea I was so neat, purse wise! Wait until I remember to make the mini purse.
This is super tidy and efficient. Love it! I too am inspired. I love the bag too by the way. Love the mudcloth, I used to have one made out of similar cloth but it was a messenger bag. I have made several smallish ones to carry those essentials but none that I like. I’d love to see what you come up with.
