My best friend’s mom kindly offered to help us make these bags, with our choice of fabric and custom pockets on the inside. I used some old denim that I had dyed green (dyeing regular denim without bleaching makes the most BEAUTIFUL two-toned effect…), green canvas, and some blue upholstery fabric leftover from someone else’s bag. I love how heavy and structured it turned out, it’s a great book bag and the perfect size for my laptop. I know we used a pattern, but I’m not sure which one.
Dark rinse denim (dyed green), canvas, plaid upholstery fabric, heavy duty interfacing, and various hardware.
