I made myself a new bag

My previous handmade bag for daily use lasted for 14 years.
About time for a new one!

I bought this fabric online (I love books…) to make three simple pillow cases and I had enough leftover fabric to make this bag. It is my own design.

It has 13 fitted pockets on the inside.
That is the big advantage of making your own bag. You know what you want to fit in it.

This is what the pillow cases look like:

I hope you like my bag and pillow cases.

What a great bag! Those pockets are probably a big time saver for finding things! And that fabric is super cool!

Fantastic bag and pillow cases! As a nerdy bookworm, I love the fabric you chose, and how you made the front flap fabric align with the fabric beneath it. Perfection! The inside is lovely with that cheerful orange. You tailored it to your specifications. May it last forever!

Great use of this fabric!

Is it cotton fabric? I’ve been wondering about using fabric for a purse but didn’t know how it would stand up.

Gasp! I thought I loved the bookish outside, but that pockety inside is the best!
