Back to school: Gym bags

Next on the to-do-list are gym bags to tote home for the mandatory weekend wash. They are similar to these but with the backpack straps. Sometimes, my girls use them for overnight bags.

You can vary them by adding a contrasting casing (to liven up this denim version).

An expandable pocket is nice for cell phones and keys. The bags were used frequently since the girls clocked 100+ hours of tennis camp this summer.

Not to be left behind, mom took up jogging and needed a lightweight version to carry paraphernalia (hat, gloves -- it was a foggy summer --, wallet). This one had a contrasting casing placed a few inches below the top edge.

A tutorial for these will be posted soon!
