Yeah, I like doing interesting linings with plain fabric on the outside, too.  Then the bag goes with more stuff, but you still have the cool lining to look at when you open it up!  One thing I like to do, though, that adds a bit of interest to the outside is to also line the straps with the cool fabric, so you get to see some of it before opening it up, too.

Great bag!  Grin I must do a Jordy bag one of these days and see if it's  much different from other square-bottomed bags I've done . . .

Yeah - I've made a few of that bag, and I decided to add an inch to the depth and sewed a 1.5" corner seam at the bottom instead of 1" - makes a big difference in how much stuff you can carry, and not too much difference in how much fabric you need!

Also, I took a tip from someone on here and cut the pattern on the fold so that there's only one seam that you can put to the back of the bag and have the front of the bag be one solid piece.  You just have to add seam allowance to the side that's not on the fold.

And, BTW, your bag looks great!  I love the blue and chocolate brown combo!

Wow - I really like it!  And I love how you painted the black around the flowers - totally looks like it's part of the print, and makes the black handles coordinate much better!

Very cool!  Did you use flannel?  I would think that that would probably work best for CD's so as not to scratch them . . . but then I'd worry about lint . . . anyhow - what did you use?  

It really looks cool, and I love the pandas!  Good work!

 I then decided to "splurge" on the metal plier type attacher... and honestly, it sucks.  Can't get it work at all.
Yeah - I got one of those pliers-type ones for Chirstmas and it really doesn't work well at all.  I like the metal things they sell that you hammer on to make the snaps connect through the fabric better.  Would love a real snap press, but haven't seen one anywhere.

Cool bag, BTW! Grin

very cool!  She will love it, especially if she remembers you wearing the tank top - it willhave extra meaning for her.

Looks great!

Cool bag, and ditto the questions about the iron-on vinyl! Smiley

Wow- great collection of bags!  You really were a busy girl!  I have been having fun making things, but have been nowhere near that productive.  Great job! Cheesy
