Great bag, I love it! Can you tell me, did the pattern come with the outside pocket zip pocket? If not, can you tell me how you did it? Thx
Thank you, Lynne!! No, the outside zipper pocket was not on the pattern. The pattern includes installing a zippered pocket on the interior, and I followed the instructions for that. As far as placement of the zipper, I just noted how far down from the top of the bag the wide pocket was on the other outside panel and used that measurement to place the zipper pocket. That way I made sure it was low enough under the oval handle to be easy to access, as well as to keep it from weakening the construction around the handle. I hope that makes sense!
