Here are my swings at the messager bag...



This is my christmas present for my male cousin.  He's in law school and doesn't  have much money. i figured he could never have too many book bags...it features a family guy button...



The inner is a man's dress shirt i found at the thrift store...it was the most masculine lining i could find in a pinch...I left the pocket off the shirt as the pocket on the inside of the bag, and also added a zip pocket.  it closes with velcro



...and this is a bag i made for myself...i didn't get to attach anything for closure on the flap of this one...it features 3 pen holders, a zip pocket, and a little pocket

i noticed she posted the same thing on the bookbag tutorial. maybe it's a grammatical error. maybe she means "i love this tutorial!!!", something we're all in agreement with. this tutorial ROCKS!  Wink

Nappyolme, I adore the bag you made for your cousin!
I think the idea of using an old shirt for the lining is so clever, particularly because he's a law student.
You did a great job!

This bag is awesome! (And whoever did the computer bag version!)

I've made a couple of Jordys and I think I'm ready to make my own computer/messenger bag, but I have one question (for now).

The magnetic snaps... I've read the other threads here re: magnetic snaps, but still don't get it. How can those little flaps be enough to hold it in place? Do you sew it in place? Do you reinforce it with something? Can they be installed after you've finished? (I want to add to a Jordy where a traditional snap didn't work out.)

Thanks!

They have 2 pieces one fits on the good side of the fabric, the other fits on the inside (it's a flat disc the prongs slide through) then you flatten the prongs.

Do you sew it in place?

No just a few holes, slide the prongs through and flatten.

Do you reinforce it with something?

No, I do use inferfacing on my fabric.

Not really unless you don't mind the discs and prongs showing on the inside of your bag.


I hope this helps, the snaps that I bought didn't have instructions so I had to wing it but they are really easy and make a nice touch.
