So Like I have said, I Crafted Christmas this year for friends and family. My dad and I go to the gym together as a motivational buddy type thing and I noticed he didn't have a bag for his clothes and belongings. So Long story short I made him this... I didn't use a pattern just free handed what I wanted it to look like and I did the quilting myself (if you can call that quilting who knows Wink ). He didn't know I had made it till he saw my tag on the inside. The fleece was added to made it sturdy. and you can't really tell but it's a boxed rectangle shape.

It's not bad for a first go.. If I make it again I think I might use a lining instead of leaving it just the quilted fleece.

Front/Outside


Inside with little pocket for keys


Side with Water Bottle holder made from fabric and elastic


sorry the pics are crap, I was up till 3am finishing this and thus bearing fruit to the terrible pics. Thanks for looking. C&C are always welcome.I wouldn't mind knowing any ideas to make this better for next time.
