I made one of these with a placemat I bought for one dollar! It is super cute and easy enough for beginners. I wouldn't even call my ability "sewing", but the bag is amazing for day trips.

This looks really fun to make! It would make a great gift for a friend as well.

At first I thought this bag looked kind of difficult, but then I read that it can be made with a placemat. That makes it perfect for a sewing beginner like me.
