Hi. Could you please tell me what brand and type of interfacing you used. Is it woven or non-woven? I really like the bag and look forward to making it. Thank you.

I just spent a very enjoyable afternoon making the small bag, and I *love* it. I squoze it out of a five-pack of fat quarters; had to piece the strap and used some solid-colour cotton fabric I had on hand for the zipper pockets, so I guess it was "five fat quarters and a bit."

I made one modification: I put small snap hooks on a cord into each of the slip pockets to attach keys to. Also I think if - when! - I make it again, I'll include a magnetic snap to close the top edge. In fact, I may take the top edges apart gently and insert the magnetic snap ... I would like it to have a fastener.

LOVE this! Thank you.

So glad you liked it, the magnetic snaps are a great idea!

Thanks - but - I think I'm re-thinking the snaps, because they would make the bag *non*reversible, and I really enjoy the reversability.

So now I'm thinking two pretty buttons, one on the "inside" and one on the "outside," with a loop closure...

Good idea! At the moment, I'm not putting anything on it - waiting to see how it works.
