Beatnik waist bag

From time to time I like to be pattern tester. I was lucky enough to get into the pattern tester group for Sara of Sew Sweetness. Her latest bag is called Beatnik waist bag. Check out the other versions of this bag on her site. It's always great to see how the others made their versions. I played with the color acent of red and orange which is featured on zippers as well. The fabric I used is called Fox Trails by Doohikey Designs (Riley Blake) and it's really cute and fun.

I was thinking about some kind of small bag for our walks or when we just going outside. This is perfect solution. There are many pockets. More than you would expect. Besides those flap pockets on front there is zipper pocket on the back and pocket divider which makes two small pockets inside the bag. Sara's instructions are easy to follow and understand.

Today is the last day of Sew Sweetness Bag Contest over at Sew Mama Sew so this seems as perfect timing and great opportunity to link up.
