So, after redesigning my original patten, here is the finished Shelstone Box Top with its brand new zip top…..
Click on the gallery to enlarge and scroll through –
I decided to make the zip long enough to start and finish on the side panels, rather than just being the length of the top of the bag, (hence the box top zip closing). This makes it even more practical and improves its functionality.
After being asked to create this Shelstone, I was then asked by the same lady to create another to be worn on the left shoulder instead of the right. This makes a difference with zip and pocket placement (you want the zip facing the front on whichever shoulder you wear the bag, so the zip is easily accessible; similarly, the inside phone pocket, situated on the inside side panel, needs to be at the front of the bag). All these requirements can be adapted so the bag is personal to how you use it.
