I made this for my sister, Jenn for Christmas. This time I used the magnetic closures like I should have in my bag. They were easy to put in, look so much nicer and I know she isn't getting scratched like me - don't use velcro! I added an extra pocket inside. I love the fabric, haven't a clue who it is by? From my local fabric store and it wasn't cheap!! But hopefully will be robust - it's a home deco weight. Happy weekend to you.
