Fabric & a Simple Bag

Here's a look at some beautiful fabrics that I will be having the pleasure of working with soon enough. I also added a little, quick project. ~ My nephew, who's also in Kindergarten needed a new bag for school. The teachers prefer these open bags & simple styles for the mere easiness it offers the little ones. Their able to shove the folders right in without worrying about zippers and such. Instead of my sister running out to the store, I had this super cute, & Spring-y striped fabric I knew would be perfect. And, it's super easy to make if your going green and boycotting shopping bags.

Making the straps are a pinch. I just always make sure to apply three rows
of stitching for reinforcement.
The interior part of the bag, which shows excess fabric, was made longer.
 In the picture below, you can
see I folded the remainder upward to hide the straps & again, reinforce for sturdiness.

Quick & cute!
