One of the nice things about having a stash of supplies on hand is that one can explore possibilities.
But first, another apron is done. It didn't use up any sparkly stuff this time, but it did use up a couple of decent-sized pieces that were begging for a purpose.

The ultimate plan is to make the bag out of something light weight and sturdy, like possibly nylon oxford cloth. The pocket, which would see less strenuous conditions, could be a lighter weight fabric, something smooth. Ripstop? Poly shirting? Straps could be either created from bag fabric or made from a strip of webbing. Self-fabric strap would be a lot easier to shove into the little pocket for storage, and a lot more comfortable to rest one's head if it came to that.

since this is a standard skirt zipper,
the pocket can't be closed. A zipper with
a reversible slide is envisioned for this spot.

pretend to be one double-slided zipper on top are visible.
