My Aunt asked me to replicate the shape and size of her book bag. She picked out the fabrics, they were inspired by this laptop bag (last pic) I made for her daughter. It was a quick and easy project. The bag has a magnetic snap closure and is lined with the same navy canvas used on the outside. Doing patchwork with houndstooth is driving me crazy because it emphases any not so straight lines. I just keep telling myself I’m only human.
