So like about last year, i was looking through the purses, bags and wallets section here on craftster, and i stumbled upon HeartofMary's AWESOME citybackpack. It was gorgeous and absolutely like what i wanted to BUY. then i thought to myself, i can make this! but after awhile, i forgot. Then just about 3 days ago, my MidYear Examinations ended, so i decided, to reward myself with some fabric. I headed down to Ikea with my bestfriend, and at first, picked up a roll of thin pink. white, yellow striped fabric. It was nice, but not quite what i wanted. As i was about to walk towards the Cashier, i saw loads of cloth. I was damn excited. And tada! i found this beautiful blue and white striped fabric. I spent the past two days working on it. and Now, im finally done.
I know the lining may seem abit strange, considering the colour is rather differnt from the outside.
The drawstring is from some twine that i braided and used gold thread thing to wrap at the bottom with some UHU glue.
Hope you like it!

Btw, i lengthened the straps by A LOT. when i cut it and sewed it, i could barely put my arms through, so i just cut an extra bit and sewed it on.
With the flap open
As you can see, i'm quite a magnetic snap closure noob. the first time i used it, love it, but i put it the wrong way :/
Thanks for viewing (: (: (:
