What are you most proud of? I was able to correct some of the shortcomings of the first bag and I added a secure pocket for my cellphone. I was planning to make a pattern this time, but I made so many alterations and decisions as I put this together that I couldn't. Maybe someday...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to experiment to get what you want. Now that it's done, I'm wondering why I used lining fabric for the card pockets. It would have been so much nicer if I'd just stuck to the main fabric in that location.

Very "dressy" - it would take you anywhere!

Thank you. I found this ancient package of vintage buttons to cover at a yard sale many years ago and finally used one. it did add a dressy touch. :-)

Wow, what a great little bag, and so many pockets for all your stuff. I am inspired by you to make some of these. The wrist sling function beats a skinny shoulder strap any day! Great job. I love this little bag.

Thank you! I used it so much. When I'm off to do major shopping or carrying books to the library I just toss it into a big tote. You have the skills to make one exactly suited to your own use. I hope you put it up for us to see.

I just came upon this beautiful bag and was wondering if you have thought again about a pattern or basic instructions for this? Some of us women appreciate a "wee" bag instead of a suitcase. I love this! You did an amazing job!!

Thank you. I haven't worked on a pattern yet. If I find time, though I definitely will! These little bags with lots of specialized spaces.
