|Version II of the Make it Yours Bag...|
So anyway, here is my third Make it Yours test bag, and the first (and hopefully last, unless people want to buy these from me) version II bag. The brown trim material is from the same drapery panel that I used to make one of my Bella bags from ChrisW Designs. The shiny beige fabric — which I also used to make my Cutting Corners Collapsible Travel Tray — is also from a drapery panel (Sears, $10).
Here is the other side of the bag...

One of my goals with respect to bag design is to create something that looks nice no matter what side is showing. You know how it goes, sometimes you just want to be able to pick up a bag and sling it on your shoulder without checking to see what side is facing "out". The Make it Yours bag will ultimately look like what the individual crafter wants it to look like, of course, but I intend to provide options for making both sides of the bag appear interesting.
Since I did customize the interior to hold my specific "stuff", I'm actually currently using this bag. Will see what pros and cons I have to report in a few months.
