I got this great tutorial here:http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html, and made this fun and functional messenger bag.  I rescued a pair of my hubby's old pants from the donation pile, and set to work!  I got the super cool owl fabric at Hobby Lobby and for the longest time I couldn't figure out what to do with it.  Then I noticed the colors in it paired nicely with the khaki pants.  I did not put the back pocket on my bag, but I did put one on the inside (actually 2 pockets made from one big one).  I also embellished the front flap with a small owl applique.  The really cool thing about this bag is it is reversible.  If I'm feeling especially funky, I turn the owl-patterned side out, and if not, I go khaki.  I can't wait to fill it up!  This bag would be great to make if you are someone who shies away from zippers, buttons, and snaps (because there are none!!).
