Hi! I made this little messenger bag for a friend. I used Heart of Mary's tutorial for the most part. I didn't make a zipper top but inserted a zipper pocket instead. I found the linen hard to get smooth! It looks even more wrinkly in the photos, I think. However, I am really pleased with how it came out! I put more about my adjustments on my blog: http://fashionedbymeg.blogspot.com/2009/05/small-messenger-and-learning-to-quilt.html
I have been wanting to make this pattern by Oh Fransson! since she came out with at Christmas. I made this for my SIL for her birthday, and I am so excited to give it to her. I used the Robert Kaufman Pear fabric again that I used on the Highbrow Hobo: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294586.0 I just love this fabric!
