I made this bag for my travels, specially designed with lots of pockets and secret compartments to save emptying all my belongings on airport floors to find my passport etc..  Roll Eyes
I was away for just over two months, and am very impressed that it is still in a fit state to take me around uni  Smiley
It also made a fantastic cushion for sitting on muddy grass at festivals this summer.

A wee close up of the many layers of pockets:

I love it, and I hope you do too.
All comments welcome.

How great! I'm impressed that it stood up to traveling, and I love that it doubled as a seat cushion! A truly well-loved (and well-made) bag!

Thanks guys!  Smiley  I was in Bangkok doing some volunteer work and went round Thailand a bit at the weekend... Fun times.

The only thing with the pockets at the front is they gape open a bit cos they're pleated - So I tried some iron on velcro but it didnt stick too well... I guess the answer is to plan better and sew in some magnetic clasps before the bag is put together?  Any ideas for adding closures after the bag is finished?
