I have been looking for a new tote bag for school. I was a traveling teacher last year and had to carry a huge bag all the time with EVERYTHING in it, plus I had a laptop bag and usually my lunchbox. I will have my own classroom this year so I want a bag that will hold my laptop, a few supplies and papers to grade. I didn’t find anything in stores I liked so I decided to make my own. I found a yellow tablecloth on clearance at Target for $5. I got some gray duck cloth and the turquoise dot at JoAnn’s using a coupon for both. I also got the grommets, stiffy (stiff interfacing) and clips at JoAnn’s. I decided to clip my laptop into the bag but also make a strap so I could carry just the laptop bag if needed. The other side holds a pocket, zippered compartment, and pencil slots. As always, the first one of anything you make is trial and error, but I really do like how it turned out. I have enough fabric left over (ok, not of the duck) to maybe make a matching lunchbox. Here’s the pics of the Honor Roll Tote.
