I finally did it! Well I was forced to do it but that is beside the point. You see I needed a new bag. Our adorable Australian Cattle Dog decided to pull my old bag off the counter and chew through the side so that she could eat the doggie treats I keep in there for our outings. Yeah hey dog it was a tote bag with an open top just stick your head in there and get em. You didn't have to eat the thing. Anyway I didn't like that bag much so oh well, and this one is soooooooooooo much better. I started by reading the messenger bag tutorials just to get an idea of how to construct the thing and then started cutting. I was originally going for plain but I had so many pocket sized scraps left over that I gave in and put 4 pockets in the front. The zip was my first (nerve racking I know). It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
About 4 hours later this is what I came up with!
Now I need to make a new cover for my planner as this one totalle clashes. Haha one project is never enough. Once I finish something I realize I have 3 or 4 more to do to make the first one complete. I have serious issues with things matching.
So yeah didn't realize the flap was on a smidge crooked until I looked at this pic. Shhhh don't tell. (sorry about the crappy pic)
My mad photography skills are on permanent vacation. If anyone runs into them could you please tell them to come home. I miss them.
Interior.... can anyone guess what the next project is that I need to do to make this one complete?
There is my fabulous zip and a key loop. I need to find a caribeaner to leave in there.
Side view: next time I am going to make the strap adjustable but hopefully the dog will stick to dog food and spilled cereal not my bags!
Thank you all for looking C&C are always welcome!!!!!!!!
