Because I am not only picky, but cheap, I made a wallet to fit couponing and financial/organizational needs.  I had enough fabric leftover to make a matching super-duper mom bag/purse/tote.

The bag has small pockets for little stuff that gets lost in a mom bag (sunscreen, baby nail clippers, chapstick, towellettes, phone, keys, camera, etc), big pockets (diaper satchels, extra baby clothes, wallet), and a stiff middle slot (papers that shouldn’t bend, netbook)

My son is very proud of himself for choosing the fabric for the lining.  My MIL showed me a stitch for the wallet.  Having a MIL who literally has a home ec degree came in handy.  :)
