No plastic please

In general I dislike the use of plastic bags. A very few are such beauties (like those from museumshops) they excape from this rule and are treated like treasures. No way I would consider to give them to somebody who suddenly needs one ;).
When F and M+L leave in a hurry to attend viollin-lesson, they use to grab an aweful plastic bag to carry the music books. You understand this should be ended. Here's a new bag for all the stuff, including the new ring binder. Because in the end I was disappointed about the width of the bag, I added two snap fasteners. They reshaped the bag fairly well, I think.

I've got the same "problem" ;). I love making bags for every occasion. I always think: much better than plastic. It frustrates me that I always have to tell people in shops: "No, I don't need a bag. I've got a fabric bag".
Clever to reshape the bag with snaps. It took me some time to find the snap in the picture ;).

Wat een mooie tas! Alsof er nog iemand zit te wachten op een plastic zakje als je je spulletjes ook in zo'n tas kunt meenemen.
Slimme oplossing met de magneetsluitingen! Geeft de tas meteen iets 'extra's' mee. Leuk!

ah, yes! we have the seem weekly trot to piano, and are in need of a bag. we have many cloth ones, but all are pink and/or flowered. not really my ten year old son's style :) i do believe your gray-based beauty could provide a jumping off point for something he would be proud to carry. thanks!
