I sent an email out to a few of my friends to let them know about my etsy shop, and one of them got back to me saying my bags looked really great, but she needed a different size messenger,  She asked if I would make her a custom messenger bag and she gave me the measurements she wanted.  I said of course and got to work.  She's coming to pick it up tommorrow, I hope she likes it!
This is the bag on me:  (Yes, that is an 8 months pregnant belly peeking out from behind it)
oops, I thought I did a better job of cleaning the mirror, sorry.

Close up of the ribbon decoration:

Front pockets under the flap:

I used stitch witchery under the ribbon before it stitched it down.  I didn't even discuss the ribbon with my friend, I wanted to surprise her with it.

I love the ribbon detailing. It looks very professional!
The bags in your etsy shop are nice, too.

Thanks! This is the first custom bag I've ever made and I wanted it to be perfect.  I actually had the whole bag put together with a different flap, decided I didn't like it and then made this one. I had to partially undo the bag to switch flaps, then I sewed the flap in backwards! So I re-did the flap 3 times in all. It was very frustrating, but worth it in the end. She's picking it up tonight.

She loved it! She said it was really beautiful and she loved the ribbon!  I'm so happy and proud.   Thanks for the belly compliments!  Most days I think the belly is cute, too, but some days I'm like "ok, time to come out now!'.  It's tiring to carry around, especially when I'm chasing my 2 year old!
