I made this bag for my daughter's trip. It was quick and easy and now I want one for myself. I found the instructions here and changed them a little. (Go to free patterns, then the Sew Sweet Satchel) I didn't use bias tape but rather 3 inch wide strips folded in half, stitched to the edges and slip stitched over the seams, like I finish quilts. I added a button and loop instead of the magnetic closure and D-ring fob on the front.
