So, last year I made myself a bookbag for school. It was disproportionate, hastily made, and kind of ugly. Sadly I didn't like it enough for pictures, so you just try to picture an ugly, crap-made bag. I was discouraged, but used it for about six months before it started to fall apart. Sad Sad . Still, I liked having a bag I made, and using a retail backpack made me feel boring. 

Fate smiled on me, and my clone-bag started tearing on the bottom. Terrified of it ripping and all of my stuff falling down the stairs during passing-time rush.. I set about making BAG THE II!

The bag:



The back: (Straps read: LIZMAT and Liz Mat Sews, in a blatant tribute to MEEEE)



The Pockets:



The Big:



The Zipper:



(IT COULD EAT YOU FOR BREAKFAST!)

Oblig. Action Shoooot:




Needless to say, I'm really proud. I didn't know I could produce such a quality product.. like, I rocked my own pants off. I don't mean to seem too into myself.. but it's a really huuge accomplishment for me. (Also everyone talks about it at school, and that is what matters in life)

LOTS OF LOVE,
LIZMAT

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
