Cute!  I love the buttons on it! 

You asked for comments, though, soooo....

How did you put the pocket on?  It looks like you just zig-zagged/appliqued it in place.  Which isn't really the neatest/cleanest method you could use.  I'm lousy at tutes/describing things, so I'll try to find a pic or something to explain what I mean better.

Of course, you're free to disregard me comment, too!  Smiley

I did used a zig-zag stitch to apply the pocket. I'm kind of new to sewing so I'm messing around with different styles right now. Thanks for the input!

Okay, I couldn't find a decent tute, so I asked my mom, my in-house sewing guru.  She said all you need to do is cut out the pocket you want, sew down the top hem the way you want.  Then just press under a 1/4" seam and sew close to the outside edge.  If you still want to zig-zag the edges you can, but by doing it this way, there're no raw edges showing. 

There are other ways, that was just the easiest to describe Smiley

PS-->When Mom was looking at it, she noticed the top-stitching around the top of the bag, and said it looks like your tension might be off. She said it could be as simple as the needle, but you  might want to check it out.

Thanks for the info. Before I attached the pocket I sewed it inside out then turned it rightways so it's not total raw edges that are covered with the zig-zag. I'm just not perfect at doing the zig-zag yet so I think that's why it looks that way. Also your mom must have some amazing eyesight to see that the tension may be off! I'll check it out and see if there's a problem.
