I've been making small messenger bags out of old pants and in some cases old shirts.  This one is from a pair of dress pants and a linen shirt.  The Airship Captain design came from Urban Threads. 



Another Urban Threads design stitched onto a pair of khaki pants.



And another khaki pants version.  This one lined in muslin.  The patch is stitched on upcycled denim using patterns from emblibrary.com.

Some more details here http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2011/09/aye-aye-captain.html   or here  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2011/09/mini-messenger-bag.html

The Airship Captain is gorgeous! I love it and I wish I could steal it from you! Grin
If you're making the pattern (as I read from your blog) I'd definitely be interested in trying to make one of those.

These bags are great and I agree with Kitiza I would love to give these a try once you get a pattern. Great job
