I have now finished the third and last bag of this series. I will probably make some more but they will all be variations on a theme.
This third bag is really large. Great for the office, to take to meetings, because it will keep everything you need in it. You could have 2 laptops or even 4 if you were so inclined, because the front and back outside slip pockets are large enough and the zippered pocket and large slip pocket inside are also large enough for a laptop. And the great thing with this Gladstone style opening is, that it stays open once you open it and you don't have to fiddle with it every time you want to take something out.
Or you could use it for a weekend away and even as a diaper bag there are only advantages with this sort of closing.
Except for a large zippered pocket and a large slip pocket inside the bag, there are two further slip pockets for smartphone or whatever and on top of that there is an elastic band to hold your water bottle.
The outside slip pockets are closed with a flap and snap button but even without opening the flap it is easy to get things out very quickly which might be handy when you're travelling - tickets, magazines, book, etc.
To carry this bag there are two handles but also a long adjustable strap.
What more can I say? Oh, the size is approx. 34 cm high, 43 cm wide and 10 cm wide. Despite its size it is a still a very elegant bag because the bottom is only 10 cm wide!
The outside of this bag I have made of cotton and for the lining I used a heavy, natural coloured linen. On the last picture you can see the three different sizes,
