Instead of sleeping last night I made this awesome bag to carry all my summer things.  Its pretty much huge.  And since I did it on a whim it doesn't have interfacing but I substituted the clear vinyl off of an old binder to give it some stiffness.  And you can change the straps (it is currently using some old bondage straps off a pair of old pants).

This was going to be the inside but once it was done I loved it more than the original outside so I think this is how I'll usually carry it.



Full length



The zebra patches are pockets that have those adorable little knots and peepholes at the top.

This is the reversible inside.



I kind winged that pocket and scrunched it up with a ribbon.  It sticks out really far but will be great to keep track of my lipstick, keys, and phone when I'm out.

This thing took about 6 hours and I still have to make it some straps, but I think it was well worth it.

Great tote!! I just love the zebra side and the bondage straps!!  You are all inspiring me to pull out my sewing machine and use it for more than just sewing linings for my crocheted bags!!
