This is a photo of a sample bag I made for a few students in my class.. Of course, my words came out sideways because I wasn't paying attention to they way I cut the fabric, but being that it was just a sample, it didn't matter. This was the first time I ever put a zipper on a tote bag. The hardest part was getting it to match on both sides of the flanges. I got the pattern from an old issue of Sew Simple Magazine, then I adapted it a bit by adding lining and securing the straps better.
I also experimented with yoyos. Don't know what I'll do with those in the photo or if I'll make any more. I'd like to attach them to hair clips, but I don't know where to get the hair clips.
I liked the bag so much that I made one for my mom for Mother's Day. I liked the size, and it came together pretty quickly.
