A Cute Bag by WonderWoman. It has a zipper and a deep curved pocket on both sides of the bag. The middle section is deep, has two interior pockets, and a snap closure. The strap is substantial and adjustable. I made the almost fatal error of putting both D-ring straps on the same side of the bag. Bu I stepped away from the bag for 24 hours and figured out a work-around. I also didn't take into account the directionality of the outer zippers, but it's ok. This is indeed an aptly-named pattern, and I'll do another one of these.
Grids and Grommets by Indygo Junction. I bought this pattern last year at QuiltCon. What appeals to me most is the grid pattern of the fabric. The installation of the grommets was a bit tricky, perhaps because I went rogue on the directions. Instead of a double layer of fleece batting, I used Soft and Stable, and it worked brilliantly. The bag stands on its own nicely.
