Spring Bag!

I spent another hour sewing last night and finished my yellow bags. The colour is a bit off in these photos. I love the finished bag but wish I'd made it a bit deeper. I can just about fit in my daily essentials including my Nexus 7 and knitting.

I made a zipped pocket for the outside. Love the green zip.

On the inside I did a zipped pocket and slip pockets for 2 pens, phone and my notions tin. I used a magnetic snap as the main fastening. 

I used a fairly thick lining fabric and laminated cotton bought in the Laura Ashley sale. As both fabrics are fairly thick I didn't use an interfacing.

This is the pattern I used but I made the bag slightly wider, straps longer and added pockets. Wish I'd made it deeper too.
