So I made this tote bag to cart around my textbooks and notebooks for school this year to make it a little bit less of a drag.  I saw the lime fabric and it inspired me.

The bag itself.

Close up of the lime appliques I made out of felt and handsewed on.

The wonderful lining fabric.

One of the two pockets I put into the lining; they close with flaps with snaps on them and are both sized to fit my iPod, so I can throw the iPod in whichever one I feel like and throw my (smaller) cell in the other.

I'm thinking of putting a buttonhole style slit in the top of the pockets so that I can plug my 'Pod in through the flap, but this is all I have right now.  I hope to make a matching pencil bag too, but for now I'm focusing on school and with gas prices I really don't want to drive home just to sew a pencil bag.

Yeah I fell in love with the fabric, too bad it was $9.95/yard!

Thanks for your nice comments.
