Purslets are convenient little purses. They hold just the essentials when you need quick access – inhaler, chap stick, hand wipes, cough drops, glasses wipes, credit cards, and money to name a few.
They make perfect amulet bags for your precious mementos or objects that protect you and bring you good fortune. And even better, it is beautiful to look at and is appropriate to wear most anywhere.
Purslets are versatile little purses that can hang around your neck in front or cross body style. They can be attached to a belt loop, cufflet, a larger bag, or luggage. Hang one around your car mirror (so long as it doesn’t inhibit your view). Keep your toll money in them.
When I go to the dentist I keep one around my neck at my chest for chapstick. When we bike or walk the trails I keep my contact info and medical information in it.
Frankly, I don’t know how any woman can go without one. Even if you are lucky enough to have realistic pockets in your clothes, things still get forgotten in there and you stand at the dryer taking it out hoping it will still work.
Little girls love purses and they will love this one.
Stars and Stripes Purslets coordinate with the Stars and Stripes Cufflets (wristlets) Shown in the photos.
They are made with 100% cotton denim, lined with red quilt quality fabric, black zipper, and durable loops on either side for attaching a necklace cord (included), a key ring or lobster clip.
Fabrics have been pre-washed in allergy and formaldehyde free detergent and without fabric softeners, dyes, or fragrances.
The navy satin cord is long enough for a cross body bag. If you prefer a shorter cord (like I do) simply draw up the cord and make a simple knot at the purse side or behind your neck. The satin cord is comfortable against your skin knotted or not. The zipper pull is also satin cord and just the right size to grasp and open the bag.
When wearing the purse, the zipper pulls from left to right to open it – the most convenient for right handed folks – making it easier for you to get in there quick when you need to.
With over 60 years of sewing experience, we have skillfully handcrafted the purslets with high quality fabrics and threads. The embroidery design was stitched in house. The embroidery design is an (c) original drawn by my husband and digitized by me, Laura Waterfield.
You will love the Stars and Stripes Purslet for yourself or as a gift for someone special in your life.
