bag pockets

 Since bags generally go together inside-out and upside-down,
so to speak, the pockets are one of the first things to assemble.
I'm excited about this outside pocket, because it has darted
corners (thanks, Lisa Lam!) which make it three dimensional:
good for holding lots of stuff without looking overcrowded.
There are also a couple of tiny, magnetic snaps under the flap
to keep things sleek. If you can get sleek in fuzzy upholstery.
This is the cute little elasticized-top pocket on the inside of the bag, 
also thanks to Lisa Lam's Bag Making Bible. Hers seems to come 
out more rectangular than mine. I think that's because 
she puts a couple of darts in the bottom of her pocket to square 
things off. I'm not pushing for perfection here, though, so 
the curvy shape suits me just fine. It's kind of whimsical, don't you think? 
The finished bag will be coming soon, so don't be strangers!
