Wool tote bag

This was a great class. The bag was surprisingly quick and easy to make. The instructor did a nice job explaining things and was very helpful. I wanted to make a practice bag before making one with Harris tweed fabric, which is spendy. I used vintage wool fabric that I got from Etsy and made the handles myself from leather strapping from Amazon. The lining and zippers were from my stash. I really like the way it turned out, but next time I will make the handles a bit longer and also add a hidden magnetic closure to the top as it does not have closure at all. I also added an extra interior zipper pocket, which should have gone on the other side (my error), but it still looks fine.
