I blame my mum and my new sewing machine for this bag Cheesy  I bought this truly awesome fabric from a remnants bin when shopping with my mum last weekend (OK, so it was AU$20, but I HAD to have it and there was 1.2m of the stuff).  I had visions of a small handbag type thing (and I think there's enough left to actually do that still) but I found a Butterick (?) pattern and so I used that to make a new bag for me to take to uni which will fit all my STUFF! Cheesy

I doctored the pattern a little by putting a zip across the top of the bag.  I figured that the bag itself is so huge that I wouldn't need a gusset on the top as well as the bottom:

I also doctored it to put a lined pocket with a zip in the lining of the bag as well.

I just love the pattern on this fabric, the photos don't do it justice really, it's more sky blue with turpquoise splashes in it.  There's gold thread as well for highlights and it's just amazing.

I seem to have found my inner craftster again, I've been posting lots of stuff lately.  Let me know what you think of this project, ok? Cheesy

I like the style of the bag, it looks great just for tossing books and all that stuff in and going.  It's hard to see the fabric in the pics, it looks pretty, very shiny, I can't see the design very well.  I don't blame you though for splurging on cool fabric you love, I've done the same Smiley

Your bag looks atleast three different colours from picture to picture, it's going to match with everything!

Thanks for your comments!  It's really hard to take pictures in our house with the crappy digital camera because of the lighting and stuff (it was quite sunny today, so they all look washed out, or it's too dark inside  Roll Eyes) but the bag is really pretty, trust me!  Grin
