As soon as school gets out for break, I always go mental from the sudden shift from having mountains of homework, to having absolutely nothing to do besides work at my lame-oid retail job.

So here is a bag that resulted from the chronic need-to-do-stuff-constantly-disease that college has permanently given me.

It's an odd bag, and I have no clue how I made it, since I just started sewing, and kept adding things and adjusting until I decided that it was done. It's lined and has all kindsa pockets, inside and out, including a little zip inside pocket, and some pen-holding slits.

But anyways, I like it because it reminds me of some kind of misfit granny who shops at flea markets and wears macaroni jewellery that her grandchildren made in pre-school.

The strap is knit out of this odd nylon "yarn" that I got at value village for about 50 cents. Super stylin' nylon!





Thanks for looking!

Wow, this is really cute. I love how you just started making something. I can't do that, I have to plan.

If I don't, the project either: 1. doesn't get finished, or 2. kicks rocks (super hard).

In sum, fantastic work!

I really like it!!   Love how you did the handles.  You made a casing for them on one side?  Great job!

That's great! 

I have the chronic need-to-do-stuff-constantly disease as well.  I just graduated from 5 yrs of college and now sitting in the car for long trips is too much w/ some hand work as well as watching TV or even going to the beach, AH!  I don't even remember a time when I could just lie around w/ nothing to do and enjoy it.
