I made this for AlternaWidget for the Science IS Art! swap. She had a make-your-own cell in her wist, and said she wanted something practical, like a tote bag, so this is what I made (obligingly modeled by my boyfriend!):




I couldn't find a tote bag I liked, so I made one myself! This was my third-ever sewing project, so I'm pretty proud of it. It has a gusseted bottom, and I didn't even use a pattern.

Can you name all the organelles? Smiley

Thanks, everyone! It was a really fun project. I included a little card with a "key" to all the organelles. Smiley
