Omy. I haven't had a night like this in a long, long time.
Can't seem to get my brain to shut off. Keep trying to lie down, but -
So, I took some photos along the way, thinking I would show you all the process for this, but it's done.
There are a couple of modifications I'd like to make...mostly to do with the order of construction.
Once again I took the webbing strap and big clip for the shoulder strap from the previous bag (what does that make? 5 bags now that I've used that strap?), and took the zipper out of it for this one.
I had a small clasp and some webbing here that I'd removed from some previous bag or backpack that came in handy holding the flap side down.
I have a hunch that I put the zipper in so that it would be more convenient for someone who is left-handed (uh, I'm not). The pockets on the inside are not as detailed as usual...there need to be more pencil slots in there (once again, an order of construction problem. I stitched through all the layers with the zipper side pocket and front open pocket before stitching the inside pocket to the lining. Big mistake).
The size is good, though, and I like the way it feels on. It holds all my gear with a little room left over for my camera, as well.
This one is certainly worth making again, better though.
Maybe this time when I lie down sleep will find me...
