very cute. i love the fabrics you used. can i ask though, what are the dimensions of it?

Sorry it took me so long to reply - just got back.  Jamaica was wonderful!!

The one I made was 15" x 18" x 6 1/2".The smaller one is 13 x 15 x 6.5.

Really cute bag.  Did you quilt it yourself?  Looks good!  Have fun in Jamaica!  Cheesy

I used doublesided prequilted material.  The binding and inside pockets are a matching cotton.  I might try quilting it myself on the next one, when I have more time.   Cheesy

Thank you grooovy and bagtart for your comments.

I haven't posted in awhile since my bags generally do not appeal to most here, but I'm really proud of this one and I hope you like it.

I used this pattern http://henriettashandbags.com/quilted_carryalls_pattern.html to make a bag to carry on the plane (on my way to Jamaica!!)

If I make another one, i would change a few things, but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I might make the smaller one and carry as a purse.  There are 8 pockets and 3 of them are divided.   

This side pocket on the inside is divided in thirds

This shows one of the end pockets and the coin purse.  It's attached with a tiny d ring and swivel hook. 

This is one on the outside end pockets.

I think I understand what you are saying.  Can you try this? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0  Put a pocket in the outside fabric near the side seam, 1 in the lining fabric, then when you attach the outer & lining fabric, so can have them on opposite sides. 

I can picture it in my mind how this would work for you.

Did you try a new needle?  The last time that happened to me, it was the needle.  Worth a shot if you haven't tried it yet.

My corner thing. For years, I used the end of a chopstick and never got sharp corners.  I bought the corner thing for a couple bucks and it made all the difference.  I don't even know the right name for it.

Very nice.  I've used gallery glass before and mine didn't turn out that well.  Great job!!

I think this is the basic idea.  Just make the strap part longer and leave the bottom off.

Thank you bethr, stacijane & mediasunshine for the nice comments.  I really appreciate it.

Here's the link. 

I used a heavier weight cotton, so my top isn't as floppy as with thinner material.

Thank you to the crafter that posted the link to this pattern.  I used fusible fleece on the outside fabric.  The lining is just simple black ripstop nylon.  I added a pocket to one side to keep my water mix-ins and splenda.  I hope you like it.  Comments, good or bad, are appreciated.
