I put lots of pockets inside to hold things, plus I use plastic canvas for the bottom to add some structure.
I don't have anyone to give it to - yet. But one thing I'm trying to do is have a variety of things made so when I do need a gift, I've got them done and I can "shop" my own gift shop!!
This bag goes nicely with a quilt I made six years ago for a technology class. The idea was to create a power point show that taught something. I did mine on quilting. I still have the top - I haven't quilted it yet. It's been hanging over my upstairs railing, adding some color and style to my staircase. I think I'm going to have to quilt it soon and add it to the bag for my gifts.
