I have had the outer lining fabric for several weeks now, I bought it in Ikea with the plan of making myself a tote bag. I've made several bags and always as gifts and decided it was high time I made one for myself. Only I wanted to push myself. I wanted to create a bag with sides and a bottom panel.



Putting it together was insanely easy and because of how it has been sewn it could be reversible if I felt like it.






(My fianc being a delightful model lol)

I'm still contemplating whether to make some sort of decoration to add to the outside. I'm leaning towards definitely doing it and if I do I'll add pictures. Grin

I'm really pleased with the bag, I wanted something large enough to carry notebooks to the library and yet not too large that it looked silly against my small frame.

It has taken me forever and a day to upload these images because apparently the Craftster Photo Hosting site will only allow one image to be uploaded at a time despite having the option for at least five.

I have to admit I was very surprised to see really funky fabrics at Ikea. Thanks for the lovely comment!

I hadn't even thought about it like that and when I went back and looked at the pictures I saw what you mean, it's like the lining is jumping out which is fantastic.

Thanks for the lovely comment.

Thank you!

When I saw the fabric I thought it just screamed bag, I'm glad I was right.
