This is a similar concept, but a slightly different design that I find easier to manage than those very long strips.

These organizers are approximately 8" long x 5" high when finished, so that they fit in even modestly small purses.

Best of all, they are absurdly easy to make.

Step 1: Hardly any materials needed

All you need is some relatively lightweight fabric cut to a 20"x16" rectangle. You know, this would be a perfect project for one of those fat quarters type remnants they sell these days!

You should also have an iron.

A sewing machine is very handly, but not necessary if you are a hand sewer.

Dude, AWESOME!<br><br>I've seen the need for this many times.
After you fold it in half. You could have sewn the bottom closed and the side up. This would create another pocket in the middle?
Yes, in fact that's what I did. And I'm still using the same one two years later!<br>:-)
Perfect!, this was what I was looking for :D thanks

wow! very brilliance organize pocket..I really likes and thank you for sharing your idea:)
Kitewife just made one of these as a gift for a friend - she likes.<br />
&nbsp;High praise, indeed. &nbsp;Thanks for sharing. &nbsp;:-)
I think this is a great idea. Might just have to whip something like this for my work bag to keep my camera, novel, pens, puzzle book, sunglasses, cell phone, craft item, etc findable. I drive a school bus and take stuff with me for those unexpected things like breakdowns in the middle of nowhere, or waiting around for my passengers.
So it's like an extra purse in your purse?
Um.. well, yeah. Actually, it's more like undergarments, providing inconspicuous lift and support. :-)
To babair: I like the "undergarments" comparison. Great instructable! Easy, inexpensive, good photos, and appeals to at least half the population. The other half of the population has pockets in their clothes. To threecheersfornick, think not having to dig to the bottom of a bag to find a pen. This organizer keeps the pen sticking up and accessible. Once you find the pen, you will know that your wallet is here, your cell is there - all by feel. An extra plus in the dark recesses of a purse. If you don't carry a purse, you won't "get it."
I was joking, just a teensy-weensy bit.
