WOOO HOOO and woot woot I'm so proud of myself and the Messenger bag I just completed....took me less than a day, which considering I was too stingy (didn't want to waste that much ink or paper!) to print off the tutorials, and had to stop and start all the time to come into the puter and read the next step!
It's for a young lady I know, who's mad on cows...and a lovely crafster advised me where to get the moo moo material.
Any how, I keep walking past the completed bag, pointing to it, with big cheesy grin firmly in place, and tell anyone near me "I made that!"
Let me know what you think of it.
Sorry about my fat body being in the last shot, maybe I should've put a warning before it! I just wanted to show roughly where it sits when worn across the shoulder, which is where I know Mooey (real name Mandy but nicknamed Mandy Moo a lot of years ago!) will be wearing her bag.
Hope at least one of you thinks this is ok for my 1st attempt at a few different things, such as zippered divider...adjustable strap and whilst I've been making Jordy style bags for a while, this was the first one with so many layers of fabric etc in the corners! I must just say, the corners were a challenge in their own rights and I almost gave up, but persistance won out in the end, and I got there.
