One of the best ways to make your bag more functional and totally customized to your needs, is to add the number and size of pockets that are just right for you.  Whatever the pattern dictates for pockets can be altered.  If you’re adding more pockets, you’ll just need a little more fabric.  I have had as many as eight pockets in one of my larger bags.  Think about sizes and shapes appropriate for the following:

  • Cell Phone
  • Keys
  • Sunglasses/regular glasses
  • Pen/Pencil
  • Coins
  • Water Bottle
The more personalized your pockets are, the more organized you will be! 🙂

About Anny

I am happiest during the creative phase of bag making. My studio is in a downtown historical loft built in 1890 with a view of the harbor. I have an armoire full of beautiful fabric and a map chest full of buttons, fringe, beads, and all the little pretties that make a bag one-of-a-kind. Every time I sew, my faithful Golden Retriever and English Setter are at my feet, and on REALLY special days, my precious granddaughters sew with me!
