A Purse - gift for my mum (FEEDBACK NEEDED!)

My parents came to visit me in Ireland few weeks ago. We had a great time together, enjoying beautiful weather and amazing Irish countryside. As you might remember I did a project few months ago – PURSE which became my favorite accessory for all occasions. When I showed this purse to my mum during her visit, she liked the design and mainly the idea that I can carry EVERYTHING in this bag: money, keys, phone, credit cards, business cards, coupons, bills, lipstick and much more!

So I have decided to make very similar purse for herself. I used different fabric, but same design. I made the pockets smaller as the pockets on the first one are a little bit loose. 

The purse has 12 pockets in total:  9 pockets for credit cards/business cards, 1 pocket for bank notes, 1 zipped pocket for your coins and 1 extra large pocket for your phone, keys, lipstick, …It closes with black elastic band which hold the purse tight.

I would like to get feedback from you. Do you like this purse? What would you change? Would you like to see this product in my shop??

Extra large clutch -wood structure print

Clutch has always been a great accessory to any outfit - day or night. As you know it is usually quite small to fit all our necessities and we always have to consider what to put into that small but stylish bag. This problem is now sorted! I have made this extra large clutch in which you can carry EVERYTHING! More stuff you put in, better look it gets!

Basically this bag is large square pocket which needs to be filled in with your "survival stuff" , such as your purse, mobile, keys, make up, diary, ... it can fit your laptop too! Just slip that in and carry it under your arm! This bag measures approx.15.5 x14.5 inches so if your laptop doesn't excesses these measurements you can use it as laptop sleeve too!

What I like about this bag is not only size but also the fabric print. The wood structure in black and white looks so cool to me. I am sure this lovely print will make beautiful finish to your outfit!

The clutch is made from firm 100% cotton and it is lined with black durable fabric inside. It closes with two magnetic snaps.

This clutch is available for purchase here
