I didn't want to put denim on the inside because I thought it would be too dark, so I found in my stash a graduated lighter blue with dots that look like rain drops on it. I had purchased a remnant of a light beige with swirls and I used that for the pockets and the bottom of the bag. So, I think it turned out better than some of the others I've made since I had to be careful while sewing. I learned you can't take out stitches from the faux leather without it leaving holes.
Let me know what you think!
Have a blessed day!
