    Sewing: Owl Bag

    This little owl bag is perfect for travelling as a make-up bag, carrying books, or even housing pottery tools! Meal prep Sunday time. I follow @leefromamerica on Instagram.

    Purse pouches – the greatest way to keep your purse organized. Between work, school and life my purse can sometimes get over run with stuff. These purse pouches are here to save me.

This way, when I need to grab something it’s far easier to be found. Okay, let’s get started! What You Need about a…
