New School Bag No 6 I think....

My daughter Rachel started secondary school in September last year and we duly went out and bought a new school bag, a messenger type one large enough to carry all her books etc, she then decided that this wasn't the right size bag and she didn't like the fact it crossed her body so she asked me to make her one, which I did and you can see here. She uses this bag for the days when she doesn't have many books to carry. Then there are the days when she has lots of books so she asked if she could have a large rucksack type one, so we searched on ebay and found one that was ideal or so I thought. Last week she said "Muuuummmm!!! (you know the way they do when they want something!!)can you make me a new bag with a bottom, because this bag is too small this one is too big etc etc..... So off we go to my workshop and discuss styles and fabrics and this is what we have come up with..

I bought the fabric last year to make some cushions and bags for her new bedroom but hadn't got round to using it (you know the way that these things happen!!!) I have to say that I'm really pleased with the combination and am tempted to make one for myself, but I am under strict instructions that the same fabric cannot be used so I just need to find some fabric for me.......
