Serendipity Hip Enlarged in Hot Air Balloon Fabric

I have wanted to make an enlarged Serendipity Hip for quite a while and finally decided to just do it. I made the top of the bag straight across, rather than curved too. I like this larger version because it still has all the great features of the regular Serendipity Hip, only bigger. This is a pattern from ChrisW Designs.

This enlarged version measures approximately 10" wide x 12 1/2" high x 2" deep. (The original size is 8" wide x 10" high x 1 3/4" deep).

The bag has a zippered closure and there is a zippered front pocket too which is handy for quick access. 

I made a zipper pull with beads and a hot air balloon charm too. Did you notice the charm and the balloon in pink behind it are the same pattern?
Back of the bag.

Inside the bag another zippered pocket and a credit card/cash pocket.

The credit card pocket will hold a couple of cards and behind it is a deeper pocket that will hold cash folded in half. So if you don't want to carry a separate wallet, you will have more room for other items in this bag.

Above the front zippered pocket is a hidden slip pocket with a phone pocket. So handy and convenient for quickly grabbing your phone.

Here you see the zippered closure and the hidden pocket above the front zippered pocket.

This bag would be a huge hit at a balloon festival. Sadly, our International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque was cancelled for this October, but hopefully the balloons will be flying high again next year at the Fiesta!

This one of a kind bag is now listed for sale in my Etsy Shop. Get it before it's gone.
