On the Go Bag — sort of

A good friend of mine made Annie Unrein's On the Go Bag and liked it except for the size. It was simply too big for convenient use at — for example — a quilt show. Previously, I'd made Annie's Name Tag Bag, and I love it, except for being able to easily access and organize money in it. (As an aside, it is a perfect bag to use on a cruise ship, where carrying money isn't a consideration).

At any rate, my very good friend figured out how to alter the On the Go Bag to make it a size we'd both prefer, and then she shared her tips with me. :) Here's my new bag, ready to take to the next show. This one is roughly 7" x 8" and has pockets galore. There's the clear pocket for show badges, with a divided zippered pocket above that on the flap. The back has a large open pocket that will work quite well for my cell phone and my small sunglasses case. The main compartment of the bag, also zippered, has several credit card pockets and space for a change purse, a lipstick, some tissues and even a small camera.

The strap is adjustable, so I'll be able to wear it as a neck wallet, a shoulder bag, or across my body, depending on my mood. The bag has the perfect amount of stability, thanks to the Soft and Stable that adds both padding and body. I'm ready! :)
