1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / a pink plaid punk messenger bag :] on: August 05, 2005 04:43:41 PM
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! :]

hey there, this is my first topic on craftster.

i used to do a lot of work with duct tape because my sewing machine pedal was lost by my boyfriend's mother... and i didn't get it back till now :/

anyway, here is a picture of a duct tape purse that i made:
