I just finished a bag I had started a few weeks ago for my dd.  She is a budding artist and I found this fabric that was perfect for her.

She recently bought herself a travel art easel and I thought it would be nice for her to have a bag to carry it in.

This bag was inspired by all the great messenger bags that have been posted here.  This is the second bag I made without an actual pattern.  I think I am ready to go back to patterns for a while, this making up my own is really challenging my creativity.  Smiley

The first pic is the front of the bag, the second is the back, the third is the front with the flap open, the fourth is the flap open top view and the last one is a close-up of the fabric.

I didn't put any pockets on the inside, so I didn't take a pic of the bag empty because it is pretty boring.  I think my dd will be pleased with it.

Thanks for looking,

I said I am finally getting back into the groove because I have been in a sewing funk for a while and haven't made anything in months.

Now, I have completed two projects in two days.  Smiley  I am finally feeling motivated to sew and I am inspired by the wonderful creations you all share.

Wow that bag is very roomy i need one of those, i love material you used very appropriate.

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.
