Found a very inexpensive black fabric that I thought would be perfect for a mini messenger bag.  At first, I thought it would turn out boring but when I was done, it actually turned out great!  I really love it!  Roll Eyes







The difference with this design and my original mini messenger bag (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=272387.msg3076550#msg3076550) is that I used an all-purpose zipper instead of an open-end one. The zipper is 10" long and the end is just covered with a fabric tab. I didn't have to make a new strap...the long strap here was saved from an old bag.



The great thing about using black (aside from the fact that it will match anything) is that all my sewing imperfections are not obvious!

Hope you like it!  Grin
