New bag for me

I needed a new bag, and rather than buying one I thought this would be a good opportunity to try making one myself; in particular I wanted to learn how to make an inside zippered pocket and insert a magnetic snap closure. Along the way I made a few execution errors (probably because I wasn't following a pattern), which made the dimensions a bit smaller than I had originally planned, but overall I'm very happy with it and am already using it. I had wanted an adjustable strap but didn't have enough of the navy fabric - I'll know better for next time. The outside is a navy lightweight canvas, and the inside is a Japanese mushroom and hedgehog print.
