Made a new bag for myself! I plan to use it for the office! I think it transitions well to evening get-togethers as well.

The front features a sleeve (both sides), a heavy duty zipper running across the top of the bag, and 2 interior sleeve pockets to hold all my goodies. I made the interior pockets fairly wide and deep so i can easily drop small and large personal items in.

I also made 2 more using various other prints.

Oh my goodness! I love love love this bag! I aspire to make one as detailed as this someday. Smiley All three are adorable, but the pink is my favorite. Great work!

I absolutely LOVE this tote!  You did an outstanding job on each one of them.  Did you use a pattern?  If so, pleeeaaase share which one, because I want one just like yours!

These are very cute. What kind of interfacing did you use? I like how structured and stable it looks.

for the bag base, i use pellon peltex heavyweight interfacing

for the zipper facing, i use an ultra-firm iron on interfacing, its thin and stiff

i'm working to get a pattern together for sale, its definitely been a work in process...

there's a bag pattern by amy butler, the weekend traveler, the idea is sorta the same, if you can master that bag then its not too far of a stretch to figure out the construction for my tote.
