I have a Pirata Stellina that I would love to remove the pocket flap off of. I like the size but the flaps drive me crazy. Also the pocket itself has a great placement but it gets covered up by the pocket flap (which doesn't have such a great placement). I know someone cut off their mesh and said that there were small holes left from the leather piece. How noticeable were those holes. I went back and looked at the picture but could not see any holes. If possible could you take just a close up of the holes?
