Today made this adorable bag based off of the tutorial I posted last night. I absolutely love it! It's exactly what I needed for school.
I did make a silly mistake though so I thought it would be worth sharing: When placing the straps to be sewn in make sure you place them between the two right sides on each side and not just inside the inside-out tote. If you do this they will be trapped inside when you turn the bag inside out.
Also, I found that I prefer leaving the opening to pull through in the top hem of the bag. This makes it very easy to iron and simply sew shut. I believe in the link it says to leave the opening in the side of the bag..
If you aren't into in making your own bag but would like to have one I am making them for $28.00 for a simple tote and $32.00 for a pocket tote. (shipping is always free).
I have several solid and patterned materials and can combine up to 3 different ones for your bag based on your interests. All bags are reversible! Pre-shrunk and machine washable.
