so i was having a hell of a time figuring out how to stuff my 11x14" sketchbook into a significantly smaller messenger bag, when i decided to make one that would fit it:

(hello, my little conundrum)

so i drafted up a few plans and went downtown to pick up some fabric. i fell in love with a pink plaid that reminded me of a nifty cool pair of pants that i borrowed from a friend in high school.

and went to make my bag.

so here it is, finished. it's lined with some basic black cloth, and has a zipper to keep evil ninja thieves out :X



i made a quick cloth strap for it, but it doesn't feel sturdy enough, so i'm going to get some regular strap.. material.. and make a better one.

this is my first sewing project other than sewing hems on pants, so please excuse me if it looks kinda crappy :[

thanks for looking, though! :]

No, I think it looks great! I have a similar problem with my sketchbook: it fits in my bookbag but I don't have a good bag for when I don't feel like wearing my entire backpack to, say, the mall. You've actually sort of inspired me! I would like to see a design or something on the bag, though. Something siple like a black or pink star with some pins around it, or something.
