Many years ago I carried a "briefcase". I had been given one out of a different, boring fabric from one of my manufacturers but I always liked the design of it. So I made my own "briefcase" out of Mary Engelbreit fabric. What? You expected something different from me...seriously?
Here's the inside with all the little pockets sewn in to hold my calculator, papers, and pens. I used two over size red zippers around each side so that it would open wide.
Here's a close up "beauty shot" of the zipper..lol
And yet another view so that you can see the black webbing that has held up well for the handle. I never had to worry about anyone having one just like mine. All the photos will enlarge if you want a really close view.
It's hard to believe but this little chest of drawers has been with me for 38 years now. I know this because it was in my son's room when he was a baby and he just turned 38 a few weeks ago. My how time flies. It has been painted red, white, and blue and probably then just white with assorted fabrics covering the drawers. Covering the drawers with ME fabric was the last thing that I have done with it while it sits in my workshop/office. It still makes me smile when I see it.
