Shoulder bag

I made my first bag!!! I needed a bag that would fit an A3 sketch book so I decided to give my sewing skills a chance and followed Tiny Happy's shoulder bad tutorial [with some adjustment to sizes], her tutorial is great and very easy for a first bag. I used some Hessian fabric that I got a year ago for the outside and an old scarf that my sis had for the lining.  The nice thing about Hessian is that you can cross stitch on it, so I hope to add a bit of detail to the bag later on.

I didn't know that making bags was so easy and quick, so I'm sure I'll be making another one soon.

My A3 sketch book is for a Geometric Art course I started on Saturday. Above is the first design we did using a pencil, compass and ruler. I'm hoping to incorporate some of theses patterns into my class and I'm thinking of a way to set up a compass activity.
