This bag here was created on a whim, from what was originally going to be a flat and boring tote. As I have never made such a bag before, I pretty much made it up as I went along, with the help and suggestions of a dear friend. Sadly, I parted with it for a swap, but I am glad the owner likes it as much as I did. (:
Oh yeah, it's super sturdy--two layers of fusible interfacing on each fabric for a total of four layers of interfacing in there! Yeesh! The sides are floppy so they can be folded in, and there are pockets on each side.
