So, I decided that when we go to the Gorge Amphitheater for Download 2007 (INCUBUS!!!!) that I don't want to mess with my backpack again. I wanted a big over-the-shoulder bag - but I looked in my closet - and the Shelf-O-Purses didn't have anything quite like what I was picturing. So I made this:
It's big - about 11" tall, 13" wide and 5" across at the base - with my very first zipper ever!!! in one of the inside pockets. I used this tutorial
and I think it worked out perfectly!
I was going to make it a messenger bag, but I put two heavy-duty magnetic snaps in there, and snaps shut so tightly that I didn't see the need for a flap. I do think it's a little bare on the outside, though. Any ideas to spiff it up?
