I needed a bag to hold my ID, keys and cell phone when I walk Noel, my cocker spaniel. So I came up with this. A small bag that has ties to hold the contents in and two long ties that can be tied at whatever length and style is comfortable. Here's the pattern. Questions, comments or constructive criticism always welcome.
