The Sherpa Starlight Purse/Wallet
Sherpa fleece has always been popular but now it is becoming fashionable for accessories too. Here’s my first foray into using Sherpa. It’s a purse, a wallet, a mini bag organiser, a card case, a phone case, a coin purse – even a modest clutch. Pop it in your bigger bag and it’s not only handy for an impromptu night out but also helps you find your bits and pieces without too much rummaging.
The outer is made from creamy Sherpa fabric and the inner lining is made from a soft faux suede so it’s snuggly inside and out. Not only is there a top zipped closure but also a zipped pocket on the side for cash and a few coins. The inside features some card slots – into which you can fit several cards Both zips are finished with a hand cut leather tag and small antique brass look rivets.
I was asked to test this by a bag designer so you can expect to see more versions in different fabrics. There is also a navy blue rose embossed vinyl purse with a cotton lining and piping.
If you are thinking of sending this as a gift (perhaps for Mother’s Day?) this lovely and unusual purse comes wrapped in its own organza bag and actually packs quite flat for easy postage.
This one measures 7.5 inches (19 cm) by 4.5 inches (11.5 cm).
