Summer Backpack, Summer Bag

In this part of the world, we have a hot Summer.
I managed to reorganize my summer clothes and shoes, but I realized once again that I don't have a summer backpack assorted with such a lightweight outfit yet. 
From some time, my spine likes backpacks more than bags.
As I had in my stash a few yards of fabric I bought a long time ago having in mind backpacks, bags and pouches, three days ago I started to make it.
I didn't have a pattern, I just knew how I want it to look.

It took me two days to finish it but only because I had no idea how to do it. Everything was set up on the go.

That's why the two exterior pockets I placed on each side came out too small. But they are still large enough for the cell phone and keys.

The interior is roomy and handy as it has two large pockets. Of course, I looove pockets! 
I think you never have enough pockets!

The next one will be perfect, I'm sure.

But for now, I have to make a bag for one of my friends. 
I will use my Bluebell bag pattern because my friend told me that it has one key feature she loves most: the exterior zippered pocket placed on one side. 

At the first glance, this pocket looks like a usual one. In fact, it is a tricky pocket.
Thru the little opening, you access actually the both interior sides of the bag. No, you don't get in the bag. It is a huge pocket embracing the whole bag.
This means enough room both to keep the things you need to have on hand and to create a secret place hiding your precious things. Reading these, it seems to be contradictory. In fact, I thought this space to have just this functionality. It really works. 

So, I'm going back to work.

Have a beautiful day, my dears!
