This is a really cute little bag (9 1/2" wide x 9" high x 4" bottom), that goes together super quick & easy. I really like the nice, wide bottom (and it's a boxed bottom, my favorite kind to make! No extra pieces or darts!) that makes this bag really roomy for it's otherwise smaller size.
Like I mentioned before, I went ahead & used the same fabric I used for my Cosmo Bag, I just can't get over the combo. I ended up not using the striped fabric for the inside this time, instead did some fussy cutting to get different colors on the inside.
The exterior, pocket, & strap pieces are all just rectangle cuts, and the interior pattern piece is made by tracing the exterior after sewing on the top band. I traced mine onto freezer paper so I only have to do it once, but you could save a step by tracing it directly onto your fabric (as the patterns calls for). I think I'm going to trim my piece down by just a smidge though, it was a bit baggy on the inside.
There are two slip pockets on the inside, one wider one that is split in half. Next time I will make the narrower pocket just a bit wider, my phone only barely fits.
Overall, I really love this bag & will definitely be making it again!
