Sew pocket lining to pocket fronts with right sides facing, sew along the top of the 7-inch side with 3/8 inch seam allowance (all other seam allowances will be the same unless indicated).
Turn right side out and top stitch 1/8 inch from the seamed edge.
In the same manner, assemble the second pocket.
Stack pockets with vinyl sides facing and place at bottom of lining piece matching corners. Baste pockets in place along 3 raw sides.
Place back fabric on top of pocket unit matching the top edge and stitch together in the same manner as pocket assembly, turn right side out and add the top stitch.
Accordion fold at the top as illustrated, the fabric will come down about 2 1/4 inch then back out, the backing fabric will come all the way back down to the bottom of the pockets. Add a folded loop of ribbon between folded backing section at the top (see pic). Sew around raw edges leaving 2 1/2 to 3 inch opening at bottom of bag.
Trim excess fabric around seams to reduce bulk when turned. Flip right side out through opening and hand sew opening closed.
