Here is the front of the bag. I've made the pocket--it zips open and you can put stuff behind it--so it's two pockets in one. I realized after I cut the fabric, that the bottom fabric probably should have been the body of the bag...white for the bottom isn't such a great idea, but as my sister pointed out, it can be washed.
I'm doing this one step-by-step so will take pictures and report a bit at a time. That way, when I start to make the next one I'll have some memory of what I did last time and it might be a bit easier next time.
