I changed two things about the bag and added a few things. (I hardly ever make something without altering it.)
First, the side pockets were these long, skinny, useless things. So all I did was add a row of stitching to close it up so that it can be used for SOMETHING other than long skinny objects.
Second, the interior needed more pockets. I added pockets for pencils/pens, my wireless mouse, and my handheld GPS (Nerd Alert: I like to geocache. If you don't know what that is, check out the geocaching website: www.geocaching.com.). Third, I stitched up the center on one of the huge pockets to make 2 big pockets.
What do you think?
