Awesome tutorial - thanks!
The bag looks great.
Someday, when I catch up with all my craft projects (haha right), I will have to make a bag like that.

Thanks so much for the tutorial! Between the instructions for this bag, and some made-up ideas, this is what I came up with. It's a case for my girlfriend's computer, we couldn't find anything (affordable) in the commercial world, so I decided I'd make her one. The outside is pleather, (not that shiny in real life, really!) and the insided is padded w/ high-density foam & lined in flannel.
Not bad for someone who hardly ever sews! I mostly knit, and I've never sewed anything more complicated than an a-line skirt!

That's a really great bag. I love the outside stuff. How thick is your foam liner?

calico13, that bag is great!  Was the pleather hard to sew?

Thanks for the compliments!
The foam is about 1/2" thick, it's high-density foam, though, so it should provide enough padding.

The pleather wasn't terribly hard to sew, but if you sew on the right side, use a piece of tissue or tracing paper over it, so your foot doesn't stick (I picked that up from somebody here on a vinyl purse sewing thread). The pleather I used wasn't that thick, either, it was like tapestry fabric, only a little stiffer. Does that make sense?

Can I just ask how everybody who has made a messenger bag before sew the straps on strong enough so the bag would last long esp for carrying textbooks around?

Thanks,
Felicia

I sew thru the strap a few times, or a square with an x inside it if the join is visible.

To the poster who couldn't find the interfacing, at Joanne's you have to ask for it. Sometimes they hide it underneath the cutting counter. Just tell them what you are using it on and they will get the right weight.
