Tired of looking for your keys, glasses, coin purse.... or worse - leaving them on some sales counter? Now you can make any purse, already made or under construction, into your Minder by adding a simple tether (or two!). The clever tether can also be stitched onto pants pockets or backpacks. Then all you have to do is make one set of Buddies - a coin or credit card purse, a sunglasses or large cell phone case, a reading glasses or regular cell phone case... and simply snap them into Today's Purse and you're safely off to do today's errands! Pattern includes complete instructions with photos and pattern pieces for: TETHER, RECTANGULAR OR CIRCULAR COIN PURSE, TWO SIZES OF GLASSES OR CELL PHONE CASES as well as TIPS to embellish your projects and perfect stitching curved seams! Ready to get perfectly, portably organized? It's easy and fun! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew and Iron SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Adjustable: circular coin purse is 4.5" round;2 sizes of cases fit sunglasses and mobile phones

I started out as so many of us did, hand stitching scraps into doll clothes. Later, my father encouraged me by promising that if I made clothes on my mom's idle Singer, that he would buy me materials for one project at a time. When it was finished, I could get another. (Clearly that lesson of finishing before starting another never really took!) I love sewing, designing, handwork, pattern making... and I especially love that my daughter MollyKate is my website partner, Official Tester and inspiration; my granddaughter is a "nouveau sewist"; and that I am blessed with creative, great friends in our Sew Fun Club and new friends through Craftsy.
