Fill‘er Up

DSCI0018The most important thing one needs for school (besides books, pens and a brain) is a bag to carry everything.  I wanted a bag that would work for all my needs and still be cute at the same time.  Being insanely cheap also wouldn’t hurt.  So I whipped this one up with some fabrics I got at this one little thrift on Main St.

The fabric is printed to look like woven straw and was intended to be for outdoor projects.  Still, I couldn’t resist the irony of using it for a bag.  If you look at it from a distance and squint your eyes, it does look like a straw bag.  Maybe I can use the scraps to make little “straw” baskets.

Anyway, I used some of the material from my binder cover to make the strap and as an accent.  Now the binder and bag match.  I wonder if it’s a little too much to be coordinating school supplies?  Hmm.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Slippers
  • Handkerchiefs
  • Cases
  • Pens
  • Binder
  • T-shirt
  • Skirt
  • Bag
  • Background

Nine down and out.  Now I just have to wait,  Summer classes start next week.  Should have my next list up by then too, assuming I need to make anything else for class.  Hope so.  Fingers crossed


  1. A fun little bag! I think it's great to co-ordinate your school supplies...

    1. Yeah, at least everyone can tell which is mine.
