omgmarissa- The fabrics a faux fur.  Its great and soft and when we get to go sit in the halllway and read....I have a furry pillow!

pillagethatvillage- That is SOOO cool we have the same name.  I've never even heard of someone with a name anywhere near mine.

brookem- The strap was bought from Joanns. 

twiggymissretro- The fabric was bought at Joanns as well. 

Well here's my attempt at a tutorial.  I'm going to explain it because I didn't take any pictures while making it...and I'm not making another one.  So here goes:

I started out with the Simplicity Pattern 9000.
I made it way, way, way bigger than that though.  You'll just have to guess at what size you want.
Instead of cutting out the strap of fabric I made it out of webbing. And this bag pattern calls for flaps with the velcro...I didn't like that so I made the front piece come all the way down.
I also put the pockets in before I sewed the sides to the back. 

(Sorry if I'm confusing)

Then it was really flimpsy and it needed some support so I stuck a piece of card with quilting batting on either side in the back piece.  I had to slide it down through the front flap.  (that probably made no sense so I apologize).   

Hope that made sense.  Undecided

That IS hot! I made a messenger bag for school too, and now I wish mine had pockets like yours! I have an iPod too!
