I'm so proud of my latest creation! It was my first try at a bag and i love the results. Basically, i wasn't using my backpack in school because the fabric on the back was making all my pretty clothe pill, so i decided to make my own! The other problem that i had with my ex-bag was that everything didn't have a place! It would all fall to the bottom of my back and if i wanted to get at anything i would have to dump everything out and that was a real pain! So i decided that i had to have a specially sized pocket for everything that i own! I Well anyway, I really love toile and so when i went to Fabricville and found this beautiful but expensive toile i new i had to have it! ( i got the lining fabric at a really great price!) anyway, by the time i got to the zipper stage i didn't have the slightest idea how to put it in with the lining, so i went to the seamstress that my mom has been going to for 28 years (she's like a grandma to me) and she explained to me how to install it (after she offered to do it for me, with i quickly refused because i wanted to do it all by myself!) so....here it goes!
Oh and BTW, i took these pictures in the library with my web cam....i had to be discreet, sorry!
Okay so this is the over all bag with the outside pocket (with snap!!!
My first attempt at piping!
