Recently, I purchased fabric for a spring jacket from Mood Fabrics. After making the jacket, I had some left over, so I decided to make a new gym bag for spring. I've made this bag before in other fabrics, and my complaint was that it drooped in the bag's middle. Since I didn't add any structure to it, the bag hung from the straps and caved in. I wanted to give this bag more shape, and zip ties turned out to be the solution.
