that is so slick!  i love the idea of a two-in-one.

what kind of stitching did you use for top-stitching on the messenger?  it really makes the bag stylish.

I just got a new Kenmore computerized sewing machine for X-mas from the in-laws and it has about 100 different stich variations on it!! This is #69 Kind of like a row of asterisk *********. I think it looks great!  My husband suggested the yellow. I was just going to do gray, but I like how it turned out and am glad I took his suggestion!

Today is the first run for the duo. Back to teaching school today so I'll give it a try!!

ALSO...thanks to everyone for all the great feedback. This is my first post and I'm so excited to continue posting on Craftster.org!

THANKS AGAIN!!

All I can say is wow...you did a great job!  I'm jealous...I want that sewing machine.  My in-laws bought me a new one too but it only has 20 stitches.  Nicely done...I can't wait to see more.

Actually, I didn't use interfacing because the fabric I got was upholstery fabric with the kind of rubbery backing(water resistant, I guess). At a $1 a yard on the JoAnn's bargain rack I couldn't pass it up.  Both the messenger and Jordy are made out of it(and the batik lining) and they both seem to be really sturdy.

Thanks for the compliment!!

This is the exact bag I have been looking for. It would be perfect for work. I have lots of stuff to carry and right now I am carrying a tote bag and a purse. I was trying to create something, but couldn't put my finger on it. You are very clever!

Glad you liked my Jordy/Messenger Combo.
If you're interested...
I used McCalls 2933 for the messenger with a few modifications.  I've made two from that pattern and I suggest that if you are going make 'B' try to mod the pattern so the top strap goes the full length of the top of the bag, like "A" does. Mine 'flops' over a little if I don't have a full length book in it(which I usually do so no biggie!) My husband has A and has no problem. ALSO...I'd add pockets on the inside next time for pencils and school junk.

AND...I used the Jordy pattern from this site!!

GOOD LUCK! I love mine and use it everyday!! Had some great compliments and the best part is if I need to go into a store after teaching school, I can just un-button and I'm stylin'!

Thanks for the compliment! Grin

Thank you for the tip. I probably won't be able to start on it until next week. In the mean time, I am figuring out all the custom goodies I would like to include.
