It's BACK TO SCHOOL time around here !!!!! I asked my daughter if she wanted me to make her a school bag. She chose the pattern and the fabrics.
Next time, I think I will change the direction of one of the magnetic snap tabs. It is awkward the way it closes now.
For the interfacing on this bag I used the really, really stiff sew in pellon interfacing. I don't know the exact number of Pellon it is.
For the closure, I used elastic stretchy cord--it was originally from a hoodie that had a draw string bottom. I have several pieces of this type of cord that was given to me. So, I'm always trying to think of projects to use it on. I made an oops and put the button closure on the front of the bag instead of the bag flap. I don't think anyone will know. :) Until now that is.
