Finished my traveling bag!

I've been working away on a new bag to take on our Big Trip, and it's finally complete:

I used another pattern by Marlous Designs, who has some very nice looking things in her collection. I did tweak the pattern a bit, adding an internal zipper pocket, an extra back pocket with a billfold insert
(taken from the pattern of the last bag I made, which is starting to show signs of fraying), and then I added an "afterthought zipper" on the top. I don't know if that's the technical term for what I did, but it's a great way to add a zipper after the rest of the sewing is done.
