This was designed as I wanted a bag that was the right shape to hold papers and magazines without creasing. But I did not want to carry something that looked like a boring work bag or laptop bag.
I like comfortable handles when carrying anything weighty and so I designed these thick and padded with wadding. Because the straps come round the bottom of the bag and are completely sewn on, it feels very secure.
It is a great beginner project as it is quick and easy to make.
It would be easy to alter to suit your needs. You could perhaps make it a few inches longer to hold a laptop or add basic pockets to hold pens.
