i was brave. i love dinos. i love your bag. i made my own, slightly different. i used velcro instead. hope you like it. the inside is bright blue/turquise. it looks cute, but i did not want to go image heavy on you. <3 thanks so much for the tutorial, you rock!


Wow, that turned out awesome! I love dinosaurs, so it makes me happy that your's is made out of dino fabric  Smiley You should send me more photos (of the lining and such) And maybe I could put some of the photos on my site (I'm happy that the tute worked well for you!)

Where did you get that fabric?

oh this is the best part, the fabric was $3 a yard at wal mart, i could not resist. i got the lining in the quilting department of joann fabrics and used some iron on interfacing that makes it feel sort of like a thing plastic to toughen it up.

here are a few more pics:

sorry it is so image heavy.

Thank you so much for the extremely helpful tutorial! This was my first major project (evident in the quality. The interfacing I put in and my hap-hazard measuring kinda did me in) and it turned out better than I thought it would!

the outside, demure and plain. (holding some books and etc..for weight) I may leave it as is or put a stencil or applique on it.. what do you think?

the inside, maps! There is a handy pocket (the black thing) and a hidden pocket on the side for cell phone or pens,pencils (yay for measuring mistakes!)

Thank you again for the lovely tutorial! Next time I make one I will be sure to measure and sew correctly  Wink

all your guys' bags are great! 

« Reply #18 on: February 11, 2006 08:26:49 PM »

thanks for this tutorial
its great
and easy to follow

i made one for my little brother for his birthday
the one he's been using for his books has fallen apart
its a little plain
i wanted to do a stencil on it
but i ran out of time
and this way he can personalize it himself
he's an artsy fellow

its cream colored canvas with black lining
and there also a small black pocket inside

this was my first messanger bag, im so proud
