Now that I've gained a bit more confidence in bag making and found my favorite interfacing combo I've started doing craft shows and vendor fairs. A woman who had been on vacation in the states from Misawa, Japan where her and her Air Force hubby live and she told me she wanted to order a tote but just said "anything so long as it's basic black and white, i don't need pockets on the inside but if i could get some outside ones".

this is what I came up with. a basic tote with ribbon on the front pockets and a black and white polka dot lining:)

ps: i apologize if "watermarking" images and posting them is against the rules and please delete this post or move it or whatever you have to do. I looked through the "forum rules" about "advertising" but didn't see anything specific to watermarked images without the intent to gain sales. I mark all of my stuff now because I had been posting pics on facebook and another person was taking all my images and posting them on her fb saying she made them and that I copied her designs. :s

again, I apologize if this isn't allowed.

That's a really nicely made bag- the lines of the pockets are so clean! I like the idea of pockets on the outside and I those straps look like the perfect length.

thank you so much:) ever since i started fusing the interfacings to the fabrics before cutting, i've noticed i get a lot straighter/crisper edges and whatnot to everything. it's not the most "frugal" way to go about things but it's definitely been a positive change to my bag making lol

Really cute!  What do you use for interfacing?  I'm still trying to find what I like best.

I've found that i LOVE LOVE LOVE Decor Bond, heavyweight fusible fleece or thermolam (there was a generic heavyweight fleece at my local Hancock store that was absolutely amazing but haven't been able to find it again), and pellon lightweight fusible in combination with each other Smiley
