Thanks for your comments, everyone! fuzzygalore, yes, my wallet does fall out of this pocket! (Not, however, anywhere other than in my sewing room.) If you move around at all, or shift other things in the pocket, the danger's real, and worth avoiding. You make an an interesting point about cell phones, and you can see in the picture above that I actually keep it in the shoulder strap, since this bag has that handy feature. In over five years of using my transferable pockets, none of my low-tech cell phones has ever affected any of the cards I carry -- but that may not be true for those of you who have much cooler phones than I do!

Actually your wallet won't fall out of it. I've tried on the original, and SB says so too (and she's not that stupid..). I even have a vertical pocket in my current backpack, and nothing's ever fallen out of it, even when I forget it open for hours. Really like your transferable pocket, it does allow you to change bags without forgetting half your life. But now that I've found out that your cell phone can demagnetize your credit card, your bus pass, your work badge, I'd recommend putting it into the handle pocket for it on this bag, and not having it part of the whole thing as you pictured..

Very beautiful! I have this pattern and will refer to your review prior to sewing it. In total amazement that you saw the problem with the vertical zipper BEFORE sewing it and BEFORE all your stuff fell on the floor! Thanks for saving me.

You have certainly improved this pattern and your bag looks beautiful.

I just made this bag on the weekend but still need to review. I like the way it hangs on the shoulder. I plan to make the smaller version next time and am looking at adding additional pockets as well. I like your additions. Yours looks great.
