I have a confession to make. I've made a lot of stylish bags over the last two years, but for the past few months I have been guilty of carrying an ugly, pen stained backpack to and from work. It just didn't seem right. So, I made myself something I could be proud to be spotted carrying.
I can fit a lot of stuff in this bag, which is good because I carry a lot of stuff. The contents of my bag vary daily but usually contain some combination of the following: gym shoes/clothes, lunch food, homework/school notes, craft magazine or novel.
I finally learned how to sew an inside zipper pocket. The zipper and the bag are not perfect (sewing with vinyl is hard!), but overall I'm pleased with the end result. For the sake of my sewing machine, I don't think I'll be sewing with vinyl again anytime soon.
