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!!).

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what it wears.

Adorable  Grin

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.
