sorry to  get back so late on this response, but!

::::i would like to make the messenger bag but i would like to know where you put the cardboard piece in? and do u sew it in or glue it or just place it?::::::

When I put the cardboard in I just made the hole in the bottom of the lining big enough to fit the cardboard through. I didn't sew it into place it just all stays in place in some magical way   Wink

so...i finally figured out how to resize host and post my pictures (MAYBE) so i thought i'd post a pic of my very first sewn bag EVAH.!
i was just a practice run kinda thing, so i didn't use any interfacing or anything, so it's kinda floppy. i really like the size though (approx 11x14") and it was pretty easy thanks to your awesomly clear instructions. i think im gonna put an applique` of the contrasting fabrics on each side of the flap..the blue is technically the outside, but....it's reversible!! whoopie!! so here goes....

what a great bag!  and i really like the fabrics, too.  thanks for such a great tutorial, especially the gussets--i have been looking for some clear directions on that very thing!!  Smiley
i'm definitely inspired!

Hey i just used this tutorial--but at one of the last parts where it said to put the "bag" inside the "lining", i did that, and had to make a hole in the bottom of the "bag" to turn it right side out. Can anyone please explain the last few steps to me?  I'm very frustrated because 1) my bag is HUGE and i can't function with it and 2) there's holes all over the place for turning it.  Sad

hooray! i finally finished my bag! i LOVE this tutorial. thank you so much for putting this together! i didn't have any problems following the directions.. you did a really great job of putting this together. if anyone is having troubles with their bags, i'd be happy to help. just send me a message. ok, without further ado, here's my "ode to veggies bag".

i put a little side pocket in the bag so i could put my mobile phone there and not lose it  Tongue and my metrocard pocket is key! what i love about this bag is that it's all business on the outside but on the inside it's a fun print. i can wear it anywhere. you can see more photos here: [url]http://www.gleek.net/gallery/main.php/v/crafty//url]

i can't wait to make another one! i have soooooo much fabric now. i'm thinking about doing a jordy bag next.

Hi, Gloriana.
Thank you so much for this tutorial!

The pattern was super-super easy to draft, and it sewed up easily too.  I really love my bag. 

I don't have a digicam, but maybe I'll post some pics later.

Thanks again!  I'm definitely going to make more!  My pretty floral bag is such a refreshing change from the black satchel I've been carrying around!

Thanks again!

Hey, is there any way you could tell me what the dimensions are used in your tutorial?

I love it to death, and im going to make one of my own. I'm just.... retarded when it comes to size. =/

Just live in love. ♥

This particular bag's finished dimensions are: 13" long, 10"wide, and 2 1/2" deep.  The strap is 48" long and the flap is 7 1/2" long.  I added 1" to all measurements when cutting out the fabric and used 1/2" seam allowances.
