So, I was given this nice bag my boyfriend's parents didn't use. It came with the tent. Made of green canvas with metal rings in it and a hook to close the original bag.
I loved the fabric the moment I saw it and decided to make it into a bag for school. (I work as a teacher)
I used a pattern, this one I created myself. But I always end up reconstructing, altering along the way. I measured it wrong or I didn't think it through... Things like that. It ended up looking like this:
I wanted the metal ring in the bag, and thought of ways to close the bag with it. The hook of the original bag wasn't a option, it's not removable.
My boyfriend was taking apart an old computer. The harddrive has big, strong magnets inside. I sew it in the bag, Yahoo, I can close my bag with the ring on the magnet....
My bag has two pockets inside, it closes with a button. The lining is made from fabric that was given to me by my aunt. It's green with white, little fishes on it.
The side of the bag has also a pocket. Above the pocket, sewn in the seam, a keyring. You can put the keys in the pocket and take it out easily and you won't lose it either...
On the front of the bag, there's a little coin from a cabin we visited in Norway, which reminds my all those holidays in my favourite country.. We go camping, of course...
So thanks for looking, any comment is welcome..
