It's probably the pink straps but I want this bag NOW and I don't even go to gym! I'm glad to see the 'easy' rating because I have to make this DIY Gym Bag and then I'll decide who to give it to. A bit like "built it and they will come", haha!

I have made bags before from totes to purse but not a gym bag yet. I just thought they were harder to do but with this tutorial they really are not just a little more fabric to work with but if you have always wanted to make your own here is a nice tutorial. I like making my own bags because you can control the size and pockets you make. On my to do list. Thanks.

I was just looking up gym bags (they are so expensive)! This DIY version is such a great idea!
