Thanks, I am very proud for the way it came out. I changed the pattern on the strap. It got complicated when I had to knit it upside down so that it was facing the right way on the sides of the satchel.
Well..I did the designing and then hubby had to figure out how to get all to fit. I did a cell phone pocket in the back. I did the pen and keys pocket on the inside. I did select the material. I just needed help with the lining box. Hubby did use the sowing machine for some parts and I hand sowed the rest. Yes, lucky to have hubby...we have know each other since 3rd grade.
My mom found the black lining today and called. We don't have it here in Canada so she will send me what I need.
