|This morning the project looked like this...|
|...and by this afternoon -- A Messenger Bag!|
The bag above is the second messenger bag I've made. The first one was made as part of the Zakka Sew-along, and looked like this...
|Messenger Bag #1|
For Bag #2 I found a gray linen fabric at my local thrift store. The linen was quite thin so I fused it to a heavy-duty fabric to give it body. For the lining and front design I paired it with a fun print from a line called Everything But The Kitchen Sink, by RJR Fabrics. I chose a hexi design rather than the leaves for this one, and really like how it came out.

|The back -- I split the back pocket on this one. On the first bag I felt it was too much of an open pocket. This seems to work much better.|
|Yep! I blurred the edges so you could not see the dust on the mirror! :) After all -- when sewing, who has time to dust?|
