Last year I made my own version of a bag I'd bought at Wal*Mart (as can be seen here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376814.msg4446396#msg4446396).  While I like that bag and have used it alot, it's just a little too small to use during school and sometimes I have trouble fitting all my stuff in.  So I made another bag in the same style.


ta-da!  Same style, just a bit bigger.  

The inside:





I love me some zippy pockets.   Cheesy


Standing more upright.  I added some interfacing to the handle this time to give it a little more strength.

The outside fabric is canvas.  All the rest are just assorted cottons I think.  I honestly don't even know how old the lining fabric is...I'm pretty sure my grandma bought it (and she hasn't been with us for awhile).  Even though I can see all the little things wrong with it, overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.   Smiley

That looks like a very useful bag and pretty with the different fabrics you used.

thanks! 
i think one of my favorite things about making my own bags is that i can add as many pockets as i want.  so many of the purses i see in stores just don't have a sufficient number of pockets for my liking.

You sure did a good job in matching your fabrics.  What a stroke of luck that your grandma's piece fit in.

thanks.   Smiley 
i picked out a few fabrics from my stash that could be used as a lining before i went to buy the canvas.  i didn't really want to buy any fabric other than the canvas, but i ended up having to buy the green and white fabric too.  but it was just a fat quarter, so it was cheap enough.   Wink
