My daughter wanted a casual bag and liked the design at http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/01/1-hour-bag-tutorial.html. She modified it a bit as she wanted a flap over the top and she wanted it a little larger to fit in her many bits and pieces. We bought the denim fabric together. Its tough, hard wearing and certainly has a nice casual feel about it.
The teenager is happy with it and it passed the fit to be seen in public test.
We have had a little more rain overnight which is a wonderful thing. Our water tanks are still very low but at least the fire danger has passed for now. Maybe life can start returning to normal.
