Hi!  I made this little messenger bag for a friend.  I used Heart of Mary's tutorial for the most part.  I didn't make a zipper top but inserted a zipper pocket instead.  I found the linen hard to get smooth!  It looks even more wrinkly in the photos, I think.  However, I am really pleased with how it came out!  I put more about my adjustments on my blog: http://fashionedbymeg.blogspot.com/2009/05/small-messenger-and-learning-to-quilt.html
