Title: painted messenger bags
Post by: sagaciousblonde on November 05, 2009 10:03:24 AM
I love enormous messenger bags and how useful they are. I love wearing them.  I love how so many people I know use them to make a statement.  I like personalizing my own. 

This is the one I'm carrying around right now.  It's not stenciled and was unplanned - I was just procrastinating at the beginning of NaNoWriMo.



Before that one, I carried this one:


This one was mixed media and incorporated paper into the design - which unfortunately wasn't as waterproof and could not go through the washing machine.  I ditched it out of necessity.  Happily, the phoenix bag is machine washable - I was careful to use paint that would stay fast.

(ps: apologies if this isn't the correct forum for this - I've previously tried my hand at making my own messenger bags and I'm not so good at sewing...these are some sweet, enormous, durable messenger bags that I found on amazon.)

The phoenix one is just beautiful. I'm a sucker for messenger bags too!
It's a shame about the sad washing machine-related demise of the first bag. :)
