Yay! for a new bag. I discovered a new material that I love working with for bags called Pack Cloth. It has a coating on the backside to make it waterproof. It's very durable and cleans up easily. You can purchase it at The RainShed...love that store.
The inside stripe is an Ikea print.
The outside has three pockets...good for pens and a cell phone. The closure on the pockets are elastic and handmade ceramic buttons (made by a friend). The top of the bag has a binding into which I inserted elastic cording with a toggle at the center. The strapping is 1 1/2" and includes a strap adjuster...so handy. Happy Tuesday. xxoo janae
