I'm really proud of myself on this one. I've actually been using this bag!! I used Michael Miller's Whimsy Surf fabric and the pattern is from Sweet Pea Totes on Etsy. This bag went together pretty easy. The pattern didn't list how long the straps should be so I over guessed and made them WAY to long... so after 2 weeks of putting it off I finally adjusted them today. It was my first time with pleats and a magnetic clip. I also added a zipper pocket on one of the sides, a key ring, and made the other side pocket a big bigger to add a couple of pen slots.
