    Newest project....

    Been a while since I made a bag, and this pattern jumped out at me. Now I'm wishing it was just a bit bigger!

    There is a zipper across the top as well. And that little purple spot...it's a welted pocket! Been a looooong time since I've done one of those! There is also a double row of pockets inside. Two of the pockets are large enough for an iPad or Kindle, which is what caught my eye.

    The fabric is linen I bought at Kaimuki Dry Goods while we were in Hawaii....purple is by Robert Kaufman and was in my stash.

    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

          Wow! Impressive! Am I counting right, are there 8 pockets on the outside of the bag?

                      Wow!! Thanks for all your kind comments! The name of the pattern is Cross Body Traveler by Marlous Designs. I changed the strap, it is supposed to have a slip know that enables you to slide it to make it shorter/longer, but with this fabric, I wanted a more finished look. I am going to make one for my oldest grandgirl, who is turning 13 in April, using some Japanese novelty fabric I got in Hawaii. I think it will be much easier to work with and should go quicker. Her's will have the knotted strap I think and I will also be making some other changes to the pattern. By the way, the pattern was $12.50!!!! Kinda spendy, but it did come w/the swivel clasps. The only part I had real problems with was putting in the top zipper and I think it had to do w/the way the directions were written and the little pictures. Now that I know what I am doing, it should go smoother next time.

                      And someone asked how many pockets on the outside.....seven. Plus six on the inside. I also just added a button to reinforce the pocket stitching there.
