I used canvas for the main exterior of the bag and quilter's linen for the lining so it's pretty durable. But to make it even sturdier, I added a layer of interfacing as well. I picked out some of my favorite fabrics and got to piecing. Can you spot the 311?
A couple of things I did differently this time were add a magnetic snap for closure and add a patchwork panel on the back of the bag too. That way it looks pretty no matter what way you're wearing it.
It's large enough to hold several books, magazines, laptop, ipad, and wallet.
Wait a minute... is that the Hunger Games Illustrated Movie Companion?? Yes, yes it is! I'm that obsessed and I'm not ashamed to admit it! lol I recommend this book to those of you who are extremely excited about the upcoming movie next month. The pictures of the capital, the food, the hovercrafts and everything else are amazing. I can't wait for the movie to come out!
Anyway, I hope they both like it and it brings a huge smile to the bride's face when she receives it! Have an awesome week! Linking up here.
