It’s a perfectly sized everyday bag. Not too large, not too small, with two exterior slip pockets, one lining zipper pocket (I’m quite sure you’ll enjoy this new way of installing a zipper pocket) and a smaller lining slip pocket as well. It’s wonderfully roomy inside, with plenty of space for a busy day.
It’s not a very difficult bag to make, but it does look super chic once finished. I’d say an advanced beginner (some zipper experience is helpful) would be quite comfortable making this bag. And, in case you’re a fan of leather straps just like I am, I added an extra page of instructions on how to attach a leather strap and D-ring tabs instead of making fabric ones.
