|Back with a slip pocket|
|Zip Pocket for the inside|
For my bag, I cut into my Michael Miller Into the Deep fabric, which is one of my new favorite lines!
|End pockets with drawstrings!|
|It's like a black hole for your stuff!|
|Before I put it all together...there are 3 pockets plus a pen slot!|
The only things I skipped - no rivets (I was too lazy to find mine and also working on it late at night when people are sleeping and don't appreciate hammering) I still have to make the base insert, but I haven't looked to see if I can find the plastic yet. I also still need to tack the lining into the top seams to keep it from sagging, but it stays up pretty well without it. I was just happy to have it 'good enough' for pictures before release day!
This was my first time using the half moon magnetic closures from Emmaline bags...they look so neat that I want to use them on EVERYTHING now!
|The back of the half moon magnet has lots of screws to hold it in place...also, SEA HORSES!|
I also had to make my own double zipper, but it's really not that hard! I found a tutorial video from Happy Okapi that shows how to easily add another zipper head.
|My pretty zippers...out of focus. Doh!|
|Wonder Tape. A lifesaver. Truly wonderful for zippers!|
|Soon these will have zipper pulls...when I decide on some perfect ones or commission some sea themed ones!|
|Pulling stuff through thing. New official name.|
|End has a handy hook that will even close around small things|
|Step one - poke through the channel|
|Step 2 - poke the hook through the cord - I melted the end of my cording first to keep it together|
|Step 3 - pull and viola! Easiest part of the bag...|
