So my best friend Emma is a med student. And always has tons of books and scrubs and notes to carry around. I decided that she needed an amazingly stylish bag to carry all this around in.

The fabric is from Joanns and I love the outer fabric because its the perfect color green and the embroider on it is pretty.

The inside is lined and has a pocket. There is also a pocket on the outside.

The bottom of the bag is an oval shape and I've never tired to sew something circular to something straight (the tube that was the rest of the bag) before, and it took me a couple tries around the corners. The seam ripper and I, we were good friends by the end of this.

I still need to add a magnetic closure to the top and some sort of closure to the outer pocket.

I used a vogue pattern, and the bag ended up being much bigger than I expected. But I am totally in love with how the whole thing turned out. I had to call Emma and tell her to look out for a package, or I totally would have kept it for myself.

My roomate modeling the bag:

Thanks for looking!
