I have a couple small purses - about this size of a paper back novel (or a DVD case). They are really handy because of the small size fits the essentials - wallet, cell phone, keys and lipstick. The pochette is big enough to be used on it's own but small enough to fit inside a large bag, I found this fabulous gold (mostly leather) purse at the thrift store.

Step 1: Split the Strap and Set Strap Length
Using my craft knife, I cut the stiches on the strap. I was disappointed that the strap was vinyl but was committed to this project. I experimented with the strap and decided on a length for the handle and the zipper pull. After the strap was split I used some double sided tape to hold the strap in place.
Step 2: Securing the Straps
Following the product instructions, I set the rivets. I chose to set the top rivet close the opening.
