Musical Bag

I decided to make my daughter a bag using this pattern. Beginners beware!! There is no real mention of seam allowance. I had to guess where to put the pockets and guessed wrong. Ripped them out and tried again. Had to undo a seam to sew one back in. I also guessed on the handle placement. I wasn't going to give up. The fabric costs too much to do that. So here it is. I'm not 100% happy with it but my daughter likes it.
