Stepping away from the bag worked out for the best. I like the size and shape of it now.
The snaps can be easily opened and give access to a very roomy bag. I am going to be in big trouble when my mom sees the 8 pockets on the inside of this bag and wonder why I never did that to any of her bags.
Rainy day today. Heading back to the craft room to see what damage I can do today.
