I made this bag for the "We Miss Harry Potter" swap.  I've never sewn any kind of bag before, and I think it turned out remarkably well, even with all the things I screwed up and had to fix along the way.

I used this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182493.0 , though I increased the size, changed it up just a bit and added a few things.

This isn't the most fantastic pic, but shows the size of the bag, sort of, keeping in mind that I'm much larger than the average person:

The inside, with all the little pockets:

And the inside of the inside:

Thanks y'all! ^_^  I don't think anyone's wisted anything I made before, I'm flattered!

That bag be magic. Pure magic.
Of course, the integration of all houses, bleah. (Ha, I'm a Slytherin at heart)
Kidding, though. I'm a Harry Potter geek. I would pay good money for that bag.
And for the first one you've ever made?
Man, you sure make me feel bad about the first bag I ever made.
I miss HP, too.
Why wasn't I told about this swap!!?!?!?!?!?
