Simplicity 1495, downloadable version, in corduroy and polka dot cotton.
This pattern is pretty nifty, has some great details.
Side pockets as well as inside pockets, the bow with buckle, and tab/clips to hold the top closed.

I like both bags that you've made.  You've done a good job.  What is a clip closure?  Is it a magnetic snap?

The pattern actually calls for a regular snap applied to the tabs that stretch across the bag to keep the sides tucked in when closed. I used a mitten clip instead. I also used mitten clips because I had some in my stash (but didn't have o-rings which that pattern calls for). It closes with a magnetic snap, as well. Extra secure!
