VPP inspired reversible bag…a birthday present for my sister in law. I modified the pattern and made the straps longer and a little more narrow. One problem with this was when it came to turning, I had to undo the seam pretty far down because I add a double pocket on the inside of the bag and it was very hard to get all of that through the narrow hole. All in all I am very satisfied with the outcome and hope she will like it as well. Oh and I added some ribbon and a button to keep the bag closed and a pocket on the front to hold her cell phone.
