i finished my bag today! i'm really happy with how it came out, but the fold-up pocket thing didn't end up working for mine. Sad i think my exterior fabric was too bulky. or maybe it's because i used some really flimsy fabric for the pocket, and figured that it wouldn't hold up well on its own. so i used some fusible interfacing (first experience with interfacing, btw. i'm quite the novice) to strengthen it before sewing up the pocket, and i think it became way too stiff. oh well! it still works as a pocket, and a good excuse to show off the pretty fabric. Wink and it gives me the additional excuse to get some practice making a drawstring pouch to keep it in instead. Smiley

p.s. i can't seem to embed photos from my flickr into my posts properly. Sad when i grab the html from the "Share This" menu it ends up just posting all the code instead. i'm no expert, but as far as i can recall from what i learned during my myspace profile personalization days, pasting the html code of a picture is supposed to embed it, right? should i be doing something differently?

You need an image code... it should be <IMG> link </IMG> but this kind of brackets: [ ]

But I don't use flickr and have heard that sometimes it's harder...do they have a specific code for bulletin boards? I know photobucket does...

Ok I tried putting that around your link and it didn't work. sorry!

Another quick and dirty solution is to right click on the images, go to "Properties", and copy the image URL.  Use that in the <IMG>link</IMG> code (with [] in place of <>).  If you use Firefox, you can right click on the image, choose "Copy Image Location", and proceed as before.  This may not be within Flickr's rules; so, check before you do it.

Within Flickr, go to the All Sizes option at the top of the photo. Follow that link, then select the size you'd like to display (I normally go Medium). Once you click on that, you'll see a thing that says Image URL. That's what you want to copy in to the image tag here on craftster. Hope that helps. Smiley

Glad to help - it took me FOREVER to find the first time I went to do it myself. And then I forgot how to do it the second time I tried, so I had to figure it out all over again.

Cute bag!
You can use the fold up instructions on this thread even without a functional pocket.  None of my bags have the outside pocket but I used the instructions to fold into small square.

SkitzoLeezra, yeah i tried that idea i think, where you fold it up and tuck it into itself? it wasn't quite right that way either. but i did make this cute little drawstring bag out of the leftover liner material to roll my bag up and stuff into:
