New Bag for Me!
So, my last post was about Lauren's little mini-messenger bag, and how I was immediately inspired to make myself a nice big version. Today I set out to do just that. I had some gorgeous fabric in my stash, but the pattern on it made it very tricky to use. I had to play with the bag dimensions a lot, but I think it came out nice. The fabric store had all their fuseable interfacing on sale, so I picked up lots... and good thing too. I think I might want to make a few more of these. It was about 4 hours to sew, start to finish. I based it loosely off the 'Personalized Kids Messenger Bag" from crazylittleprojects.com. I kept the top flap simple, and made the bag larger... but it's a really good tutorial to guide you through the basic steps.
