I made a Turniphead messenger bag for the Hayao Miyazaki/ Studio Ghibli Swap.(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=277223.0 ) It was my first time making an actual messenger bag. (I've made an awful tiny one a long time ago without using any patterns. It was really bad..) I was always really intimidated to make a messenger bag but it really wasn't that bad. Cheesy I also made a pouch and 2 coin purses with the same theme. Here's the pictures:


The outside fabric is a sturdy canvas type fabric.


Close up of turniphead. He's made from craft felt. I didn't do too good on the stitching. Sad


The inside! It has two pockets.

I had a ton of fun with that swap. Cheesy  Thanks for looking! Comments are always welcome.  Grin

Wow, those are great, love the felt turniphead. You've done a great job, can't see any poor stitching on it at all!

Thanks! Cheesy

The bad stitching is on his leg stick thing and his cane. You can't really see it too well on the picture but it really doesn't look like the other parts. I redid those parts like 3 times and they came out looking the same so I just kept it that way. I just did normal stitching on it. I didn't do any fancy embroidery stitches cause I haven't taught myself how to yet. Sad
