I used the gusseted messenger bag tutorial to make what is hands-down my most successful purse project.  I used some houndstooth fabric with pretty satin-y blue lining.  The swallows were an afterthought. First, I drew and painted them in with watercolor pencils, then stuck them to a blank transparency with clear contact paper and carefully stitched it on with my sewing machine.

OH MY!  people continue to astound me on here...a houndstooth messenger-style bag with swallows!!! you just managed to incorporate three things i love into a beautiful purse - it's a very interesting shape, i like how the flap is sort of cropped as opposed to the usual gigantisaurus flap thingy (which all of my bags have (^_^) )

nice, very nice indeed <3

thanks.  Smiley  the short flap was actually a mistake!  i don't mind too much; although i think i will eventually have to put something besides velcro for a closure because it doesn't seem to hold a smaller flap down very well.
