A project born out of necessity. And you will be glad it was!

When my daughter started middle school she was required to carry a 3" 3 ring binder, but not allowed to carry a back pack. Plus, she couldnt leave her valuables in her locker. What to do? Well, design a bag for her to put her binder in! And she loved it. And so did her friends. And teachers. And my friends. They all tell me how useful this bag is and they would use it for (couponing, bug out binder, teacher stuffs, family emergency, music sheets....) so many things!

The good news is my daughter has not had a single problem with organization since transitioning to middle school. Everything is in the binder in the bag and it comes home with her every day.

Made from 1 yard of canvas designed for a 1" - 3" 3 ring binder, it has secure pockets for valuables and sturdy straps for when it is weighed down with stuff.

A tutorial easy enough for beginners, even though there is a zipper in there. Trust me, when you see the instructions with photos of the steps it will ease your nervousness! This is easy!

The tutorial is a bit lengthy, so I broke it up into 2 files. One for cutting the fabric, the other the steps to assemble. This way you can save paper and print just the cutting files if you want.

It is rotary cut, but dont worry. I am including a free copy of my Instructions For Rotary Cutting with your purchase to get you started.

Your purchase includes:

Instructions for cutting the bag
Instructions for assembling the bag

Free! Instructions for rotary cutting fabric!

What is does not include:

A finished binder bag. Though if you want one, I do have completed projects listed in my store for purchase.
