Screen Printed Flat Bottom Bag

I took some of my screen printed fabric and made a flat bottom zipper bag with it:


The screen printed fabric I used for the pouch has a real grungy feeling to it (as opposed to the screen printed fabric I used as the background in these photos).  I think that the grungy feeling makes it feel perfect for storing art supplies.  It has funky flair but I'm not at all worried about accidentally ruining it with a splash of paint or an uncapped marker.  Originally, I was going to use the fabric you see in the background to make the pouch, but then I decided it was too clean and pretty and so I decided to save it for a different kind of project.  Back into my stash it goes!

I got a little bit fancier with the zipper than I normally do: I covered the ends. I'm not sure if it makes a difference to anybody but me, but I think it looks nice and neat:

I lined the inside with two different fabrics -- one commercial and one sun printed:

It's the perfect size for stashing some art supplies to go!

I also looooove that it has a flat bottom.  Bags that can stand on their own are so much more useful for art supplies, don't you think? 

BTW, if you're not a sewer, don't feel left out.  You can grab a set of pre-made plain white flat bottom bags to decorate!
