LOVE this bag and all the personalized details!!  The blue colors are so gorgeous.

And, just a thought...since you already posted to the purses board, you could always do some close up pics of that machine embroidery and put it on the machine embroidery board!   Grin

Can you wash and dry the bag like regular with fabric paint? Just not iron it?

thanks klking--that means a lot coming from you  Kiss

It is not your typical messenger bag with the flap and sheepblue does not carry a laptop in it so I did not pad it (although the quilt pocket is padded with thin batting...)...I really loved the zipper technique...I have a purse that has a zipper like it and I love it...you do not attach the zipper at the ends...so if you open the zipper all the way, the bag is wide open and you can find all your junk, but closed, nothing falls out...I will take a pic to make this gibberish clearer Cheesy

I did find one goof I did...I forgot to attach a zipper pull to the inside zipper pocket....Sad...I hate trying to grab the little zipper head when I am in a hurry...sheepblue--I will mail you a zipper pull to attach Cheesy
