Mini Margo Finished

 I used those cool pieced bits from my design wall and made this mini-Margo bag.

This is the back side posed in front of the full sized Margo bag for comparison.



This is the front side with the piped pockets.  The green is a bit more limey in color -- I couldn't get the colors right in the photos.  At least -- that's what my monitor looks like.  That light blue is really a great shade of turquoise.

Except for the stripes, these are all my own hand-dyes.



This is a shot of the inside.  I changed the pocket configuration a bit.  The orange-lined side has a sectioned pocket all the way across.  The blue-lined side has a single pocket with a Velcro closure.


I made the straps a little less wide and used rings to connect them to the rest of the bag.  I think if I made this size again, I would make the straps the same width as the original.  I did keep the length because it's perfect.

Check out that lime green zipper!
 This pattern is so well-written.  Making a smaller version was a snap!

This is probably the last bag I'm going to make for a while -- I hear other projects calling me...
