Handmade Christmas - book bag

 My family includes lots of teachers/academics so thought I'd make some book bags for Christmas presents
Started off with a big rectangle of fabric and put my embriodery hoop to good use
I love anything nautical so sketched out a ship design

Er.. I should have sketched the design directly on the the fabric with pencil - I sowed it on the paper and then had to remove it - gah tricky!

Phew paper removed pinned all the parts together just need to put the zip in
Zip done! This was the hardest part and a wee bit of unpicking was involved to get it to sit right.
The outer fabric is thick linen - lining is a soft tartan fabric.

A4 sized book bag or document pouch!

Done! Can't wait to give this one
