so, my brother is finally graduating from college (from uga with a physics degree) and graduation is this saturday so i decided to make him something as a graduation present. it turned out so much better than i expected and i know he's going to love it.  i have a question, though....does it look manly enough? and if not, what would you suggest i add to it?

it has snap closures, a zipper along the front under the flap, two pockets on the inside back panel, and side pockets on the outside

thanks



and here's the bag i made for his long-time girlfriend (she's so cute). i absolutely love the fabric in this bag.  she's graduating too this saturday with a masters in latin.

it has a front slash pocket under the flap (lined), magnetic snap closures, two pockets on teh sides inside, and a back zip pocket



they're not entirely square but i made them out of love, so that has to count for something

Most of the men I'm friends with aren't too manly but I think it's beautiful, You have a very good eye for detail. I really like the second one as well

Those are both beautiful bags! Your handiwork is amazing.

How did you make the side pockets? I've been making variations on the Jordy bag lately, and I'd like to add side pockets (on the inside or outside, but especially on the outside) but I can't figure out how. Any tips?
