Totes by Sandy – Shirley’s Purse This purse was named after my Mother because she wanted a smaller purse. It is a perfect size for carrying “just what you need” and nothing more. It will easily hold a wallet and has 4 inside pockiets for your cell phone and lipstick. However, when your kids or husband asks you to carry something for them, it just won’t fit! This one is also a great purse to make for an evening bag. The finished size of the purse is 8″ tall by 9 1/2″ wide.
