Default Mini Professional Tote completed

This was on my "to-do" list for 2016. Used some of my Paula Nadelstern fabric that I'd been saving for who know's what!
While I found the instructions very good, with excellent explanations and pictures to guide one along, some of the tote features are not to my liking. I find the small patch pocket on the inside isn't deep enough to hold a pen, but not wide enough for me to reach inside if I were to keep my keys in it.
The closure for the inner pocket seems kind of superfluous, it's not a really big pocket and if you close it up halfway in width, I'm not sure what I'd keep in it. I'm also not sure I'll like the outside elasticized pockets if the elastic stretches out? I do like how well constructed the zipper process is, for both the set in zip across the top and the ones in the front and the inside.

First pic is the front, next is the back and the final one is a partial view of the inside.

As I heard around the house when I was little - "The proof is in the pudding" which means, I'll see how it is once I start to use it!

It really looks nice, and professional. I love the fabrics you used for it.

Nice color choices. Nice size. I hope it meets your demands. I too have chosen (bought) a really cute bag only to find out that its not very user friendly.

Very professional looking. Once you start arranging everything I hope it meets your requirements.

I have had this pattern for years and am too afraid to start it! Yours is great looking!

You have my admiration. Not only for making a beautiful bag, but also for getting it done. I made the larger size. It only needs the topstitching around the top to be finished, but making it (I was in a class.) really cured me from ever wanting to make another. Congratulations on a beautiful bag. It does have every pocket you could ever want in it. :-)
