Last but not least, the accidental reversible book bag

I have been asked to make a simple cotton bag that a secondary school girl can use as a book bag in school without being told off for standing out from the crowd. So basically nothing that is not dark blue or black šŸ™‚

IMG_3278As you know, that is slightly too depressing for me. I just can’t do it. So I thought I will put a very nice lining inside to make up for the boring outside.IMG_3279Pretty, isn’t it.

I also made a zip pocket large enough for phone, oyster card and whatever else you need in school. And guess what? Obviously the inside of the pocket needs to be different again.

IMG_3281I know, that is actually getting quite boring for you now.

Anyway, I was very pleased with the result but I was even happier when I finally realised that I had just produced a perfectly reversible bag. Which you know already because you have seen it in the picture. But I only realised it once it was finished. So it can be used with the dark blue outside during the schoolday but with the fancy fabric on the outside for the rest of the day.

It is actually a very spacious bag as it has a 8cm gusset going all the way around it so there is enough room for large folders and I am sure I will make a few more of them and put them in the shop. I will let you know.
