I'm so in love with my new school bag! Grin It's the first bag I've ever really sewn, (aside from little knitted ones) and I'm so happy with the way it came out. The outer material is a brownish burgandy textured chenille which reminds me of corduroy, but with zig-zag lines! The lining is some thin.. I don't know what... polyester or something that I found in my mom's fabric stash. It is printed with a European theme (artists, old buildings, "metro" signs, cafes...).

I used gloriana's tutorial, which was very helpful. I added little appliqued stripes to the flap about an inch from the flap's edge with the lining material instead of trim, which I love. There is a pentagonal pocket under the flap with its lining extending past the pocket's edges for flair. It also has a fairly large pocket on the back, being next to me while I wear it. The inside features a zippered pocket (sushimifune tutorial, rock Smiley ) and a pen-holder. My pocketeering skills weren't perfect, but the visible parts look pretty okay! Oh, and it's about 15"x11"x3.75". Not too bulky, but big enough for my school stuff and even my computer if I wanted. I think it's just darling, and it goes with everything! Hehe, is it normal to like things you've made this much?

Totally cute Smiley  School bags are always more fun when you make them yourself!

When your bag looks like this, yes!  The color combo is great.  I've been wanting to make a tote like this for school for some time now... maybe yours will give me some inspiration!  Very nicely done!
