I'm pretty happy with how these bags turned out, and I just had to share!
This bag I made for my cousin Katie, who is coming to visit us with her Mom during spring break. I used this pattern, but I adjusted it a little. Katie is 13 and wanted a new bag to use for this trip and at school. The original pattern had the top band piece being cut 13 inches wide, but I was afraid that was to narrow for school books and folders so I cut my pieces 14 inches wide.
This is the yoga mat bag that I was commissioned to make. I really hope she likes it, she picked out the main fabric and then I added the two others. This is also the first bag I've made using fusible fleece, I think I like this much better than interfacing, for most large bags. I even used it for the strap, which makes it a little padded.
