Here are a couple of bags I whipped up today. They are going to hold all of the new craft supplies my husband and I bought for our daughters for Christmas.
Now, a couple of months ago I would have made a couple of plain tote bags with maybe a liner. Thanks to everyone and their great creations on Craftster, I was able to make a more appealing bag by:
1. Adding pockets in the liner
2. Adding the contrasting fabric on the handles
3. Placing the band of fabric at the top
4. Adding a monogram and machine embroidering it on (not very clean, but it will do)
Thank you to all who share your craftmenship and ideas so willingly and freely. My girls are going to LOVE their craft bags!!!!
Oh, and I also made a couple of pencil rolls using this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39903.0

Both bags made with denim and an upholstery fabric with horses (their favorite animal!!!)

Pencil roll. If you look closely you can see all of the little divided pockets. We will fill these up with colored pencils and markers!
And finally, the pencil case all rolled up and fasted with elastic.
