I just made this bag for a friend of mine. It was supposed to be a birthday present, but her birthday was about 2 weeks ago. Well, better late than never!
I am so excited with how it turned out! Here are the pictures:
The pattern only has the 2 pockets on the inside of the bag, but my friend needed some more. I used the pattern for the shaped pocket from the inside to make the side pockets (which I elasticized at the top). Then to make the row of pockets on the front I cut a strip of fabric about 30" wide and started sewing what I liked. All of the pockets are lined so they look prettier on the inside. I also added to clear vinyl pockets for bus pass or whatever. Finally, I added a zipper since she doesn't want her stuff escaping.
She was especially easy to shop with since she knew it had to be sturdy black outside with an orange lining. So the outside is nylon and the inside is cotton.
Thanks for looking! I am still in awe over it since I haven't really improvised before and only have made a couple of bags. YAY!
