I enjoyed using my fall themed bag so well that I decided to make one out of Christmas fabric. This one uses the same pattern as the last one, but with a few utilitarian additions. I added a small pocket inside to keep my chapstick and nail clippers.
And I added a D-ring to clip my keys to, so they would be easy to find.
The D-ring is attached to a fabric strip that is then sewn into the seam that attaches the outside of the bag to the lining. It was added at the same time as the shoulder straps and the top closure.
