Lots of Pockets Bag

I think I finally found my sew-jo again!  This time I decided to finally make a purse.  I've been thinking about it for so long but could never get up the courage to just jump in and do it.  I needed a gift for a friend and found this was a perfect opportunity to give this a try. 
I had a ton of patterns that I purchased years ago and never put to use.  I decided I liked this one called Lots of Pockets because of those two cute pockets on the front.  The pattern designer is called Keyka Lou but I believe she may have changed her name to Michelle Patterns.  I looked in her shop but didn't see the pattern for this bag.  I'm wondering if it was discontinued which would be a shame because it was a great pattern! 

Since my friend who would be receiving this lovely purse also likes to sew, I decided to use this vintage printed fabric from Timeless Treasures.  It's just regular quilting cotton and you may still find some for sale in my shop here.  
The finished result turned out to be a good size for carrying lots of things.  I am looking forward to making more bags now!
