i needed [okay, wanted] a new bag for school.
so, two hours 2 yards of fabric and a zipper later, i came up with this.
its a basic tote, with three pockets inside [zipper pkt, pencil pkt, cell pkt]

the full view



side numero uno - pencil & cell phone pockets (i still havent trimmed the threads)



side numero dos - zipper pocket (thanks to sewpixies tut)



im really happy with it, especially this inside  Grin
comments always make me happy

I saw your tote and headed for the fabric store to get some blue/green fabric! (I found some stripey stuff!! YEH!)  I eat this tote--isn't it nice to be able to make things to fit YOUR stuff!  Nice job!  This size is perfect for books, yarn, groceries, etc. You did good, kiddo!

I eat that fabric! And I eat the way you cut the pieces, that the stripes come out from the sides, very nice. Great job!
