Keep your palm and bits and pieces safe and organised with a palm organiser.

I've been looking for a palm organiser for a while but the only ones I could find online cost £70 so I came to my senses and decided to make one.

    Using your palm for reference draw out a rectangle template on to a piece of paper. Add an extra inch and each side of the palm.
