The inspiration for this bag came from this free video tutorial below...... Missouri Quilt Company. I have posted this video once before. I love their tutorials!!
I cut my own 2 1/2" strips, added a magnetic closure, as well as inside zipper pocket, & a flap to the outside pocket. The bag is smaller than the one in the video (but it is not small).
You might have noticed that there is a small piece of the green showing at the top of the bag. I just rolled some of the lining up and sewed it in place. I somehow still had enough lining to fit the bag properly! I really like the finished look!
One thing I discovered is that the straps need to go toward the center of the bag more. I didn't do that. The boxed corners are smaller than I would have made them, but I had to accommodate the straps. You can see this clearly in the picture. This would make the outer pocket smaller as well.
I am also going to add a removable bottom for support because of the boxed corners. All in all I think it turned out quite well!
Hope you like it!
Velcro on the tab. Love the big pocket on the outside!
