Thanks for the ideas Ceil.
I have sewn a bag I invented myself. I thought of everything, made all the pockets the right size and everything. Yes, I even made an outer pocket for my tablet. I put little rubber feet on it. BUT, it was too heavy! I made it from denim, with denim pockets and quilted lining. Also, I made the inner pockets too close to the top. So I decided to add a snap and took it to a local place where they sell heavy duty snaps. Since he put it on free I took advantage of that, only to have him put it off center. Arrrrrgggghhhhhh! That drove me nuts quick. The main reason I don’t use it is that it really hurts my already damaged neck, it’s just too heavy. I don’t even carry that much stuff, but do have a habit of carrying stuff “just in case” I need it.
Anyhow. I’m hoping to save all that brain steam and buy a pattern that is darn near perfect already, and then make adjustments as needed. Or, I might just make a perfect inside organizer, and different shells. This one is pretty nice:
I no longer buy Connecting Threads thread or fabric. I find it very poor quality. I gave away all the thread I bought there and wrote on the bag “for hand sewing only” so no one junks up their machine with all the lint. The fabric ravels like crazy and is so open weave it doesn’t hold shape at all.
lol@ your old bag sounding funny. I agree, it does. (says this old bag, ha!) Maybe she said “I thought so” because she admired your old bag though.
