Thanks! I was making it from my head, no pattern. Writing things down and drawing as I went. I still think the pockets are too far apart, so will adjust the pocket size. It will make a good book bag for the teacher it's intended for. When I went upstairs last night to do the lining and finish the bag, the letter had come half off!!! I did not want to rip the outside apart, so spent 1.5 hours sewing it down by hand w/invisible thread. Was not a happy camper. My fingertips still ache today (no, I don't have a thimble or whatever!). To help myself feel better, I took the $ from the last bag I sold and spent it on a 50% off fabric sale.....got about 20 yards, so I was pleased!
