EDIT:  On re-reading the rules, I realized one bag per entry, so I've edited out the other HP themed bags.  Just for fun, you can see my other bags (HP messenger and non) here:  http://photos.yahoo.com/ofenjen under "Bag Lady"

Love, love, love messenger bags!  This is my own design, as is the Harry Potter inspired squares on the front!  Happy looking.  Cheesy

Gryffindor Messenger Bag


Thanks for looking and enjoy all the other super cool bags listed in the challenge!  Grin


EDIT:  THE PATTERN IS HERE

These are amazing!  I love how almost abstract the gryffindor head looks, but you can still tell what it is!  It's a really interesting approach to an image that's fairly straightforward.

I think I saw these on the yahoo group!  They are stunning!  I would never have the patience to do all that work though. Cheesy

Thanks, everyone!  Grin  I do love messenger bags!  All the designs are my own, and because of the technique I use (paper piecing), everything ends up with a slightly geometric look.  The only real danger is that now when I see something cool, I starting think how I could break it down for a pattern!  It annoys the heck out of my hubby!

Hi sevsonlygirl, I've seen you, too!   I just finished designing a Snape block and hope to have it made this week so I can get a photo online.  I really like the pattern.  It was inspired by some of my Snape obsessed friends.   Tongue

Sorry I had to take the extra pics down.  *slaps self on forehead* ... must read rules FIRST next time instead of after posting.  Duh!

You can see the rest in my photo album http://photos.yahoo.com/ofenjen under "Bag Lady"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks beadgirl!  Elena is my 11 year old daughter and this is the bag she carries to middle school.   Cool  Purple was her idea, it's her favorite color, too.  It's kind of surprising when she opens the bag and there is that BAM of color!
