I made this bag from two old eighties blazers, you know, the kind with shoulder pads.

This turned out great.  I love the pockets, especially.  But really, I can't imagine the plaid fabric as a blazer.  Oh, 80s... you did the funniest things to clothes.

Thanks, everyone!  The plaid jacket was a Liz Claiborne, of course.

Thanks!  I didn't make a pattern for this, just cut pieces as I needed them.  The inside is the last photo, it has a beige canvas lining.

great work! 
I just got asked last night by the youngest to make a messenger bag and I just scored some awesome plaid- great minds I suppose!

having been 8-18 through the 80s, I appreciate you making something even cooler out of one of the many fashion travesties LOL
