Sewing (Again)

I bought some materials to make a bag in Jatinegara. It was a coincidence to get the shop location. Once I saw a bag material shop when I was on busway to Matraman. It was near Kampung Melayu. Unfortunately, when I took M06 (a Kampung Melayu-Gandaria public transportation, we call it angkot), I didn't see the busway. I stopped instantly and found several textile shops there.

The bag material, excluding the fabric was all packed for people who want to sell bags. I bought so many things but I know that I just need a little amount of it.

Then, I made it. You know, I have a japanese-school-bag obsession. I decided to make this kind of bag because I already have the materials. :)

I made the bag based on this design.

I was almost made it perfectly, but I knew I messed it up because my lack of techniques. I won't tell you where the broken part is because it looked perfect from afar.

I really love the color contrast of the fabric and the strap. The zip is black and I didn't put any logos, by the way. The fabric inside of the bag is the same with my previous prototype, but it would be nicer if I could replaced it with a patterned fabric instead a plain one, just like this:

The color option is so nice!!
I would really love to try another version to strengthen my sewing technique.
