I made one for school! I love how you can't see any seams, I also added a piece of cardboard inside so that   it holds its shape better...brilliant tutorial!

Hi everyone
This is my first post....
I already made a 'jordy' bag and it turned out great except it's really floppy...

i would like to make the messenger bag but i would like to know where you put the cardboard piece in? and do u sew it in or glue it or just place it?

any tips would be great!
Thanks so much

Thanks again for the great tutorial!  I finally made mine...orange corduroy with a green felt bird on it, and I use it every day!  Smiley

Thanks for the tute!
 Here's mine, made from a favorite but too small corduroy shirt- note- the button and buttonhole placket is now the strap. I LOVE my new bag!!

There are things you can replace, and others you cannot.
The time has come to weigh those things.
This space is getting hot.

okay..any suggestions on how to adjust this to be a laptop bag? like, make it much sturdier (maybe boning around the "frame"??!), with a padded section in the middle, maybe?

it seems doable, but that's where my sewing experience ends.
any suggestions?

I've been toying around with the plastic type stuff that bacon comes packaged with- it's sturdy yet flexible, and not at all bulky- I'd bet there's a way to use it with padding or batting under the fabric layers to make your laptop bag!

so just stuff that between the lining and the outside fabric,then? hmm. so simple! thanks!

does anyone have any suggestion hon how to insert a "divider pocket" on the inside of the bag? just sew it into the lining, maybe?
i may just have to go work this out with scrap fabric, i think.
