I made a bag last week, I didn't really have the right interlining for it and used quilt wadding/batting that was way too thick. I am really disappointed with how it turned out. The pockets are way too small to be of any use and the handles need to be longer. I prefer handles that will go over your shoulder so this pattern will need adjusting to take that into account. The pattern itself is OK but the interlining really does need to be thinner.
