This denim bag really does have pockets galore! Rather than buy fabric specifically for this project, I used up scraps of denim mixed with this pretty red floral print. I didn't use a pattern for this tote bag either, instead I drew a large squareonto a piece of fusible Pellon H640, stitched the pieces of denim directly onto it to cover the outlined square, then machine quilted it in a navy thread to add texture and structure. Once it was quilted, I cut out boxed corners and repeated the process for the lining, inserting a pocket panel with a zippered pocket and a slip pocket for one side and pieced some scraps together that already had pockets on for the other side. To finish it all off, I've teamed it with some smart red leather handles... that have been hand sewn into position. The pictures below show the front, the back and inside the bag. I've also added a clip to keep my keys on too.
