    I use a Medium Cafe FS in my Pop Tote.

    I use it as my "Mother Ship" knitting bag, and I like the MCFS because it's tall enough that you can tuck it under one side of the snapped down PT if you...

    I agree with Dufffader. I have a halcyon Maker's Bag, and while I love a messenger bag style, in this material, it does tend to slump so the contents are not completely secure. I've often slung it...
