I started making a messenger bag sometime in June out of a rain poncho. It was very large and I loved it. When I took it on a flight, though, the seems split, sad day (though luckily it wasn't on the plane). I had my mom take it home, and I would fix it when I got home.
Instead, I decided to make a whole new one though! Kind of frightening that we had two rain ponchos lying around, but lucky. I used that as an outside and to reinforce it, I used an old stripe-y pillow-case. I love how it looks.

ignore my foot at the right corner xD

I like the added color to the strap, here (again, ignore me at the bottom of the picture)

This is the inside

and the little snaps to hold the bag closed

Wha'dya think?

I love those little snaps. Sooo useful, and convenient to reuse for a bag
