This was the first bag I ever tested for Christine years ago. I didn’t have an iPad or tablet then so I gave it to a friend of mine who received and iPad as a gift. The instructions were the best! So many pockets to carry your iPad and more, plus an adjustable strap to custom fit to yourself. I was new to making adjustable straps when I made this bag and I used a belt buckle that I don’t think worked very well to stay put, so I sure learned a lot from testing this bag! I made another one on commission for someone I know a few years ago. I did the adjustable strap right that time by using an adjustable slider.
You don’t need to use this bag to hold a tablet, you can use it as a purse too. I love the phone or keys pocket! A Christine “signature” phone pocket is great!

I loved doing this bag, once I finally made up my mind how to use myfabric choices. I used quilters cotton and soft faux leather. My DIL lived it
This is a super bag for people who love lots of pockets 🙂 A great bag for travelling! I prefer a smaller bag and didn’t want to carry a tablet, so I downsized it a bit and modified the tablet zipper section to have credit card pockets, divider, and a zipper pocket to function as an attached wallet. Brilliant! Also, as I was new to making bags, I changed the grommet strap configuration to a sewn in fixed length strap. GREAT pattern. I’ve made several in different sizes because the instructions are so good, it was easy to modify the size. Highly recommend as there are so many great features to learn.

This bag is amazing, I’ve made 4 for friends and they love them. It has lots of pockets, light weight and can be taylored for any individual. I’m back ordered for 12 of her beautiful bags. Chris was so great with the pattern instructions, so easy to follow with tons of pictures (that make sense). Thank you thank you Ms. Chris. I plan to buy another 6 of her patterns.
