Ellie Bucket Bag - Love It

So I chose canvas and cork for the exterior, and cotton fabric for the interior. I also used canvas for the interior divider pocket.
I didn’t do the snap cover or the grommets. Instead I made d-ring holders out of the cork fabric and attached them at the side seams.
I love the way it turned out, was having some doubts how it was all going to turn out the right way at the end.
Will definitely make it again.
