I had this great tote that my sister gave me, from a bookstore where she lived. Inside it was just blah, with seams showing, and everything got jumbled together. So I sewed a lining for it, and added pockets and pen holders.
Here is the tote itself. One the other side is a quote from To Kill a Mockingbird that reads: "Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."
And here's the inside lining, side with the pen holder and notepad holder:
And the pockets for my wallet, iPod and phone:
On a side note, I made the wallet and iPod case the other night too.
I love the fabric, but the little fabric piece on the iPod holder was sewn in backwards, so you see the blue instead of black fabric, and the top stitching is a little sloppy. Oh well. I like it.
