It would have 'some' pockets - but not too many, because then I am digging through all of them to find my cell phone and/or keys.
The pockets would be 'deep enough' but 'not too deep' - don't want that phone hopping out - but don't want it hiding at the bottom of the pocket, either.
A zipper - want to keep things contained if the purse gets dropped or flying off the car seat
Size - big enough to hold 'my' essentials - but not so big that my shoulder aches after carrying it around for five minutes.
Cleanable - ever have chocolate melt in your purse? Or a kid throw up on it?
Handles - straps - I prefer to carry it over my arm -my sloping shoulders make shoulder bags slippery
I will probably have to make a dozen or so before I get it 'almost right'
I've had a couple of bags that came close to 'my perfect' -
Anyone else get frustrated with trying to find 'the right bag'?
