I'm not big on carrying purses so I was thrilled to find this "The Sak" purse for $1 in a thrift store. The purse is only 5" by 7". I love the strap as it's long enough for me to loop the purse over my shoulder and hang the purse in front of me although the words for this are awk.
Here's what I carry inside. A checkbook. A small embroidered purse for my library card and license. A small change purse, handmade leather. A pen. An address book. And a lovely Carnet from Paris with square grid pages like the booklets Colette wrote in.
But now that I am a sketcher on the go, I need to carry my new sketchbook. Sorry. It just won't work. I'd also like room for my digital camera but that's an extra. What to do??
So two questions: A) Ladies, show me your purses!!! Well, that's not really a question.
B) What is your favorite drawing implement you carry with you to sketch on the go? (I'm getting set to send in an order to Dick Blick Art Supplies and want to get myself either a pen or pencil for this purpose so looking for suggestions.)
