So this is my first time posting on this board, I have made purses before but those were made of either pop tabs, or hubcaps and license plates. Since i am starting college soon i needed a messenger bag, and i do have one that works great and i love it but it is to small to carry my laptop so i made these two. i made alot of mistakes when making these but i still love them both.

this one is about 16" x 12" x 5"




This one is a small one about 12" x 10" x 3"



And here is the messenger bag i have been using for about a year but is too small  Sad (i did not make this one)
