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?

The pictures are from my blog, and if you go there, the pictures are clickable and get bigger, if you should so desire. Smiley

It looks great! I especially like the zipper and pockets!
I think it looks fine, but you could hand applique something or maybe stencil something on the outside

I love that red bag!
