How very clever you are! I also like the idea of button "feet".

Thank you all for your comments..I have fixed the photo if you click on it,it will take you to my album and then click again for the larger picture. I have been carrying it and also have used the striped one. I did add velcro also to the top middle of the pocket as my wallet tended to topple out if the pocket wasn't full. I'm going to look for magnet snaps as they may work better than the velcro. jan

Great looking bag. A lot of thought went into this one and, if it's perfect for you, then it's perfect.

Hi, I like the multi-purpose notion of your bag but the photo was not very clear. Anyway, I find I have issues with carrying too many bags too. One interesting idea I have seen for the bottom of bags (I think it was in an issue of Threads) is to sew some big buttons on the bottom to keep it from getting wet/dirty if you have to place it on the ground. One lady in my guild sewed buttons that virtually covered the bottom of her bag, however, it was a handbag and I think doing that would make it too heavy for a shopping bag; but 4 -5(one on each corner and one in the middle) big coat buttons seems doable. Have you used it yet? How has it worked for you?

Wow that's a great bag. Would you mind adding a photo also? If you click on the edit button, you can add a link to the final photo.
