Front of the Tote with a small outside zippered compartment.
There is an open pocket behind it.
This is the "Professional Totebag" pattern from Creative Thimble. I finally got the front finished. There is a nice large pocket behind the smaller zippered pocket on the front & the back has an entire length pocket held with a bit'o'velcro in the center. I've started the inside now - lots of zippered pockets and room for organizing all of daily life's impedimenta. This is one of the more complicated patterens I have ever made - because of all of the various pockets - not the basic construction. I really like the pattern & the size of the tote. I have no doubt that I will be making another. The directions are really excellent, althoughb I found one step that was a bit confusing - but I might have been too tired by that point. Either way I eventually "got" it and happily stitched along. It's the best tote pattern that I have found ! I'll post once more when it it entirely finished.
If things feel edgy or if things are breaking down, communications going sideways & life in general seems topsy-turvy it may not just be "you". Mercury is retrograde beginnning today & will to be continue for three weeks - or until mid October. It's a great time to review, to go back & work on projects that have already been started. Retrogrades occur several times a year and they are a good time to reflect, review & try to just "go with the flow"; it is not,generally speaking, a good time to begin new projects or transact large new deals. Travel may be diverted, computers can get cranky. There is a lot of information about this phenomena on the web. Generally, it's a good idea to back thing up right now. Most of us have lots of projects "in the works" - so not starting anything new shouldn't be an issue right ?!
the black "travel strap" made to hook over your suitcase handle.
Adjustable cord locks make the pocket easy to adjust.
