Leaving for vacation tomorrow and I needed a new bag that was easier and more comfortable to carry around than my giant shoulder bag.  Given a few hours and some scraps I'm pleased with how this came out Smiley.




I had these materials leftover from the patchwork skirt I made a month or so ago.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=313451.msg3604156#msg3604156

Love the fabrics you used. Have you tested it out? Is it meant to carry around our normal deadweight Smiley or is it meant for heavy duty stuff? Did you use a pattern or wing it?

Good job!

I am using it today as my regular bag, but it can hold a lot.  I like big bags since I almost always bring a sweater/sweatshirt w/me so I can stuff it in there.  I'll probably be using it, come fall semester, for my books/laptop as well.  The strap turned out about 5-6 inches longer than I intended, so to remedy that I folded it over 2x which actually reinforced the seam so that was a bonus.  It was almost midnight and I wanted it done for vaca today so I didn't feel like cutting out a section and then putting it back together, I took the easy way out  Wink.  I didn't use a pattern, I just kinda figured it out as I went along.  The only thing that I used any measurement for was the length of the strap (and that worked oh so well), everything else was guess-work.  Smiley
