I recently took a class at my local sewing store and made this "Professional Tote". I didn't plan very well so I ended buying all new quilting fabric. I'd like to go though my upcycle stash and cut out a few more. Maybe play around with some other color schemes. I could even embroider that zipper pocket panel.
I added a little detail of my own with the owl beads. That side pocket is on both sides and holds my coffee mug on the way into work perfectly.
I really like how it turned out. It is a large bag so I am able to carry all my junk, lunch, coffee, etc. every morning into work. It even has a travel strap so it can slide onto a roller suitcase extension handle - assuming I ever travel again.
Fully lined with lots of pockets on the inside.
I'm glad I took the class and now have to get started making a few more. Maybe I will assembly line the parts.
