So last spring, I thought it would be awesome to make a spring-y neutral-color bag for school on the lighter workload days. I drafted a pattern from scratch and bought the fabric, but I didn't get around making it until December of last year ... I guess this bag will come in handy this spring semester instead
There are lots of firsts in making this bag. It's my first time making a tote, first time making a inside zipper pocket, first time piping, and first time really using a sewing machine.... @__@ It was a little hard making the bag while trying to read the instruction manual for the sewing machine...
Anyways, here goes
The front of the bag
back of the bag
top of the bag with separating zipper
peaking into the bag... I used a bright peachy coral color for the inside to give the bag some spark since the outside is less exciting on the color choice
Close up on the inside zipper pocket. I made a little embroidery patch as the tag for this bag. It has my initials on it
Close up on the other inside pockets for pen, phone, etc.
Just put a book inside to give you the prospective of how big and spacious the bag is.
Oh, and I also lined the outside zipper pocket with the same coral fabric
Since the bag is for school, I used sturdy canvas fabric for the inside and out. I tried interfacing the bag to make it stand up but it didn't work because the iron-on interface didn't want to stick onto the light brown fabric for some reason.
Sorry for the long post but I'm really excited and proud of my first bag
I hope you guys liked it!
