a much needed zippered pouch
You're probably familiar with the scenario - for the 'you never know' moments you keep all sorts of 'just in case' items in your handbag. It's the sensible thing to do. But in my experience, these things knock around in there loose for so long that by the time they are needed, they've become unusable... dirty, broken or even lost.
Finally I got around to answer this issue: I made a wipe-clean pouch that zips up, holding all the small essentials in one place. Now my emergency pills, pads and the like can enjoy their own compartment in the mess of my everyday handbag.
I made it out of a piece of waxed tablecloth, and lined it in some scraps from the fabric cupboard. I've added a key ring too, for my bicycle key.
So that's another item to cross off the list!
