i cut out a bunch of 8.5 x 8.5 " squares and then sewed two across and three down in alternating shades of denim. i made a lining and a flap, stitched the back pockets of a pair of jeans to the flap, attached the waistband of an old jean jacket as a strap, shoved all of my stuff in (three books, DVDs, makeup, meds, wallet, keys, cellphone, digital camera) and split.
i liked the way it looked on the flatbed of this pickup.
