This is a VERY clever design with easy to follow instructions. I made this for my daughter for her high school gym bag and she loves it! The separate zippered opening for gym sneakers is very clever.

Recommended Materials
For the feature fabric use pre-washed home décor weight fabric or prewashed canvas or cotton duck fabric. If you want to make this with quilting weight cotton, add your preferred interfacing to each piece to give the fabric a heavier feel.
For lining, I recommend pre-washed cotton duck.

1.25 yards of 54” wide home décor weight
or 1.6 yards of 42” wide plus 3.25 yards interfacing.
No interfacing needed with the home décor fabric.

2/3 yard of 54” or wider cotton duck or heavy canvas

~ 45” of 2” wide poly web woven strap
~ One 2” wide rectangular ring A 2” wide “D” ring also works.
~ Optional piping around the bottom. One package.
~ Zippers: One 7” and one 14”
~ Elastic: 13” of 1” wide
