I loved the look of this bag and decided to go ahead and make it using some Cloud 9 Dragonflies in teal, which is one of the prints from the Rashida Coleman-Hale "Koi" organic canvas range.
Prompted to sew something this weekend by Amira and her IG tag #mycraftyweekendplan, I ducked out to my local craft store yesterday morning and bought a zip, teal thread, fusible interfacing and some black denim for the strap. I did however, forget to buy some piping cord so I have left that off the bag.
The lining is a the Scattered Newsprint in aqua from Collage by Carrie Bloomston which matched perfectly.
And the bag is just the right size to be able to fit in all of my daily essentials including the appropriately named book that I am currently reading....
