I'm getting pretty original with my post titles, aren't I? I made time to sew myself a bag and even take photos of it. But thinking? Now that's asking a bit too much.
My bag was getting pretty ragged at the bottom so it was time for a new one. I have a bunch of bag patterns I'd love to try out but I don't have a whole bunch of time right now, so I went with something simple but sturdy.
The outside and the inside are lined with canvas (though it's not a super heavy canvas) so it makes for a nice sturdy bag. The handles are actually covered nylon webbing so they are also very sturdy.
The handles are really a happy mistake. I cut some things wrong so I didn't have enough of just one fabric. I cut the gray fabric a bit wider than the orange making for a 'faux piping'. I like it!
Used some of my new cotton ribbon from Pink Chalk Fabrics. So glad it matched so well.
One of my zippers. I like the orange pocket on the gray.
All in all I like how it turned out. It fits lots of stuff and it's sturdy. And I love the colour!
