I made this from my own pattern. I really love how it turned out but it's a little bigger than I'd have liked. I think if I use the pattern again, I'd take off 2-3 inches from the bottom part of the bag. Also the strap is a bit longer than I'd like. There are 3 pockets inside. One inset pocket secured with velcro (cause I'm too lazy for a zipper today.), a cell pocket and a general sized pocket. I got a new sewing machine last week, so I'm in a sewing frenzy these days.

The fabric I found in the remnant bin at Hobby Lobby. I think it's still available there.

I can see where you might want to shorten the bag, but the fabric is fabulous.  Very nice job.

Great bag!  I'm always so envious of those that can create their own patterns.
