51  newbie's belted bookbag w/ matching pencil case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by palicious on: September 09, 2006 03:48:52 PM
I saw a similar version at JC but didn't like the color choices nor the price tag and so I decided to make my own.  The belt is a lot less wider than the store version and the way the belt is tired is all my original idea.  I also put a pocket on my version of the bag because I need a place to store all my lilo things.  There is also an id holder on the inside (not pictured) for my school id.

I made a matching buttom for the front pocket so that it will match the linning and the belt.  Orginally, I put on a plain brown button but it just didn't look right.

I decided to make a matching pencil case since there wasn't enough pocket space for my pencils.  I constructed the pencil case to match the front flap pocket of the bag but used a velco closure instead of the botton as seen on the bag.

It pretty much fits everything I needed it to: some penciles, highlighters, chap sticks, and a small bottle of lotion.

Any comments would be great!!!
