I made this for a family member for her birthday. She is 80 + and I wanted to put a light color lining on the inside so it is easier to see things, I also put zippered pockets in there. I think the bag looks much neater with the zipper pockets. Loved how it turned out. The outer fabric is from Joan's home dec line and the inside is just some cotton I had on hand. I found the free pattern here and made changes to it. I like this bag as it is just the right size, not too big or small.
