I'm so proud of it! I used kategirl's tute loosely. (here) Thank you for the help, kategirl!

I used black canvas and the strap thinger from Hancock, the lining ("hand-weaved cotton") and mini roses from Wal-Mart, the front red piece and the red of the strap from Ben Franklin (15% off, w00t!), and the buttons are from my collection. ^^

I'm not sure how long it took, but I finished in time for school! (Yea, it's kinda old..it's holding up well!)

Edit: The red part on the front is a big pocket. It closes with velcro.

Pictures! (I tried to make them small...)

Thanks for looking! Comments are loved! <33

Good for you. I love how big it is.  I've put off trying a messenger bag, too scared of the work.  Gee, that sounds dumber out loud than I thought Grin

Moonmom: Thanks, I like the size too. ^^ It can hold a crapload of stuff! And the work wasn't too bad, especially with kategirl's nice tute. ^^

Kaissa: Thanks! Red and black are my school colors, but God knows I didn't use them for that reason!  Cheesy
