I have been itching to make one of these for a long time now and finally got myself organised. I bought the pattern quite a while ago from Sally Thompson aka Rip Stitcher.
This project took me about 2 days to complete and because I was so eager to get it finished I'm afraid there are no pictures of it in the making.
It was a bit daunting starting off but the instructions were very clear and if you followed each section carefully it soon started looking like a bag.
It was rather exciting seeing it all fall into place. The way the pockets fit together is intricately simple and so pleasing.
You can see in the above picture the tray at the front for your bits and pieces.
The tray is a bit clearer in this picture and you can see how the first pocket is a little smaller than the others.
The long zip was a little more tricky but I probably made it difficult for myself as I padded the binding on either side to help it match in with the side bindings of the bag.
