I was inspired to make a bag the other day, and a trip to Jo Ann's Fabric resulted in some beautifully embroidered brown corduroy fabric that I just had to buy (despite it's rather steep $14.99/yrd....I only needed a yard anyway!).
Following a wonderful tutorial by Frogz (found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36676.0), I made my first messanger bag (and my first lined bag, and first project with piping!) complete with buckles, pockets under the flap, and a little pocket on the shoulder strap. I added some iron-on interfacing to the front, back, and flap for strength.
I'm in love with this bag!  What do you think?

Modeling the bag (I look really excited...but I was!)

My room after the bag...what a mess!

Beautiful bag. I love corduroy and brown and blue together. Guess where I'm going shopping tomorrow. Smiley
Though our JoAnn's is pretty lousy so I doubt they will have it.Sad  Be sure to sign up for the sale paper. That way next time you see a great fabric you can use the 40% coupon. Smiley

That is SO COOL!  I love it!  And yeah, the Jo-Ann's 40% off coupons are excellent little things that save you tons of money.. I ALWAYS use mine when I'm buying a huge piece of fabric or interfacing because it can be used for one cut of fabric.  Can we say buying like.. 10 yards or more at once?  hehe  Grin

LOVE the bag!
