Step 1: Find Cute Pattern
Step 2: Measure and Cut
Step 3: This material is begging for some bling...
Step 4: Evaluate the size, determine it will not be big enough for your stuff
Step 5: Add a bottom with some cushion
Step 6: Make that LOTS of cushion
Step 7: Assemble the outside and the middle with all that extra padding...very very slowly so you don't break the needle on your sewing machine.
Step 8: Add a lining made of ripstop
Step 9: Realize the price of foam at JoAnns, and say, "I don't think so."
Improvise with $1.50 pool noodle. Cut the pieces in half, and cover in material.
Step 10: Forget to take a picture, but line the inside of the bag with large velcro pieces to accommodate the above foam cushions.
Step 11: Apply the other half of the velcro to foam pieces, and insert in bag to protect camera, kindle, and laptop.
Step 12: Forget to take photos again of all the little bags inside the purse to separate toys from wallets, and pens from snacks.
Step 13: Photograph at least part of the finished product.
