So...long time lurker finally shows off her kitty messenger bag.  Much thanks to all of you who provided me with inspiration, tutorials, and all kinds of good karma in the process...  This bag has a little pocket on the top flap and a simple inside pocket and was made with $2/yard fabric from the store down the street from my office.  

Full on messenger bag

Yay! Gotta love those decorative stitches!

Beautiful bag and it's nice to see you post.  I lurked for a while too as I'm sure most of us did at the beginning.  You did a great job!!  I love the kitty.

Awww that's so cute!  Can't wait to see more stuff you've made!
P.S.
Your little pocket on the flap is so perfect!  Do you have a special technique for making them?

thanks for all the warm fuzzies...

thingwraith...for the flap pocket I used a variation of this tutorial:
http://www.savvyseams.com/techniques/pipedpocket.php
(savvyseams also has a really great pattern for a "choose your own adventure bag" which is a messenger bag, and even if you don't use her pattern, the step by step is great for making any bag.)

sewpixie also has a tutorial on craftster that has very similar directions, which i plan to try next time i'm in need of such a pocket:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0

WARNING though: it took me a couple false starts to figure the pocket out...so practice with some scrap fabric till you get the hang of it (unless you're more spacially aware than i am!)
