For some reason, I've had bags on the brain a lot lately. Even though I haven't been doing a ton of sewing, I keep getting ideas for new bags, searching out patterns online for new bags, wanting to buy new bags...it's never-ending! In an effort to keep up with this, I decided to share with you all today a bag that I made for Sean this year. Since he was graduating and moving on to big-boy things, I decided he needed a new big-boy messenger bag. I found this great tutorial, and gave it just a few tweaks. Here is how it turned out: (photos courtesy of Sean)
I used heavy duty black canvas for the outside of the bag, with faux leather trim for the strap and to embellish the body of the bag. For the insides, I used some light blue canvas to line the flap, and I used some hounds-tooth printed cotton for the lining and inner pockets.
I hope everybody had a lovely Tuesday, and thanks for stopping by!
