Thanks to your Quilter's Portable Workstation, I am no longer intimidated by zippers. I really have been using mine a lot lately, and the experience of making
it has made me go bag crazy. (Kathy was my QPW pattern terster.) Now I have no trouble adding pockets to patterns as I deem necessary. Here is one I made with your "Pie al la Mode" fabric.
I used the My Favorite Things Mailbag Pattern with the addition of several pockets (look, ma! zippers!) and boning in the binding to get it to stand up straight.
