Inspired by this tutorial, I set about a new creation and came up with this blue and orange bag.  It has welted pockets on the front and the inside, a double-stack of pockets along the inside back and a magnetic closure.  In addition, there are velcro side closures to tighten the bag up for security.  I think I like this bag -- there's another part of me that thinks it's actually kind of ugly!  Your honest feedback appreciated!

I think the bag is pretty cool. Is it the shape or the color that you think may be kind of ugly? If the colors you could try less contrasting ones.

I think it's the colors that I am finding a bit over the top.  I am going to make another in softer colors.  Thanks for your comments!!!

Really? I love those colors together (of course orange and blue are my school colors, so maybe I'm biased!)- I think it's a great little bag and I'd use it in a heart beat!

 Smiley Very different, but I like it. Reminds me of the 60's bags & that's good, telling my age oh well. I love all the pockets. Great job!!!

I also very much like this purse! The shape is so cool and the pockets are super! I agree though that if you wanted something a little less overstated to go with colours that contrast less than orange and blue Smiley Maybe blue and green or to liven up the winter season some yellow and orange!
