One of our favorites!
July 23, 2015 - This is a sturdy, colorful bag I'm using a lot, but I changed it up a little. The strap is not adjustable and is quite long, so I sewed a little pocket in it which made it the right length for me (and holds an extra doggie bag!). I also added a pull tag to the zipper, because it's a little hard to get to otherwise. With these easy changes, this became a perfect bag. One more thing -- it is just big enough to accommodate an ipad.
