I've been overdosing my self with all these books on crafty goodness (Including some as birthday presents).,that I've been tempted to actually make something from them, like the Craft Tote from BB (plus I got all this material from the Shoebox swap, I just felt like making something from it), but knowing myself, I don't precisely follow the instructions.
I cut two "trapezoids" each of both my front material

And my inner material

with the wider lengths facing each other & the shorter lengths outward, with fusible webbing (also a swap goody) in between the edges of both layers, ironing them together & then "hemming" the top of the bag (the iron & the webbing just wasn't working that time).

Once I was done with that, I sewed the sides together with embroidery floss, then to create a "boxy" feel to the bag, I turned it inside out, cut off both corners & sewed them together. I then used the new corners as a guide to create "edges" on each side of the bag.

I used a sash as the strap, instead of any additional fabric, sewing it to the sides.

For the front pocket, I used some spiralgraph fabric,

but before sewing it to the front of the bag I "hemmed" it with some adhesive glue.
Once attached (with some nylon thread), I added a fringe, comprising of beads & shrinky-dink (from the "SuperCrafty" book with a picture from a book of Pierre et Gilles artwork as the centerpiece).

For additional pockets on the inside of the bag, I used pieces of both the front & main pocket material, along with some additonal scraps (including some playing cards sewn together).

I also added another on the back of the bag.

With this as the end result.
