so i was having a hell of a time figuring out how to stuff my 11x14" sketchbook into a significantly smaller messenger bag, when i decided to make one that would fit it:
(hello, my little conundrum)
so i drafted up a few plans and went downtown to pick up some fabric. i fell in love with a pink plaid that reminded me of a nifty cool pair of pants that i borrowed from a friend in high school.
and went to make my bag.
so here it is, finished. it's lined with some basic black cloth, and has a zipper to keep evil ninja thieves out :X
i made a quick cloth strap for it, but it doesn't feel sturdy enough, so i'm going to get some regular strap.. material.. and make a better one.
this is my first sewing project other than sewing hems on pants, so please excuse me if it looks kinda crappy :[
thanks for looking, though! :]
