My sister-in-law, JoAnn just celebrated her 50Th birthday last Wednesday. Her husband planned a surprise party for her on Friday. JoAnn is a big time Michigan State fan. I made her a MSU tote for a present. Michigan State's colors are green and white. I wanted the bag to look tasteful so I used batiks to make S pockets on the front and back of the tote.
On the inside, there are pockets for pens and pencils, a cell phone and a date book.
One side of the interior is a large zipped pocket.
I made a zipper pull using green and white beads. (JoAnn also likes cats, so I added a cat charm)
I usually spray bags I make with a fabric protector to help them stay clean......well, let's just say I'm older than JoAnn and my memory must be slowing down....I forgot to spray the finished tote :(
