I'm going back to school this fall after 6 years of being out of high school, I decided that since my major is art, that it wouldn't make too much sense to be an art student and not make my own bag.
So, I searched far and wide (not really) on here and found this tut: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182863.0
I messed up my measurements on the flap so I added the buttons on either side to make sure it stayed closed and I think it ended up adding that extra little bit it needed, so I dig them.
This thing holds a LOt of stuff, there's 9 old reader's digest books in there!
anyway, enough blabbing, on to pictures!
(excuse the disarray that is my table.)




There's some messups on it, but ah well.  I figure it'll hold up for a while and if not, I do have a sewing machine Wink

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

that looks good. i think that will hold up to your art books (if you have any) or it can always hold your art supplies.
