Another non-quilt made in an afternoon

So when I was looking for the wallet ideas yesterday, I came across a 6 pocket bag made via the straps and the side seams. The last two days have increased my top stitching confidence quite a bit. This was also the first time I made fabric straps - which I made longer than called for so that they could go over my shoulder. I've had the star fabric in my stash for a while, it was nice to have three coordinating cuts to use in this project. The tutorial can be found here: Pick-A-Pocket.

 Making the straps - lots of ironing. 
 One side of the bag with straps sewn on making the first of the pockets. 
 Bag is done, 6 total pockets going around the outside made from the side seams and the straps. 
 Standing up against the batting.  It's not visible, but there's top stictching around the top of the bag 1/8" below the top where the lining folds back over itself
Boxed corners.
