all of the t-shirts in my home are hiding from me, i am making them all into bags!

so, i've never made a messenger bag, and making this made me realize how much i LOATHE webbing.  i had no heavy-duty needles or anything, so i turned to my favorite adhesive, super glue!  it seems like it's holding up, but we'll see when my bag falls apart and my crap goes all over the school, haha.


you can't see, but the writing says "We Have The Facts And We're Voting"  and "Death Cab For Cutie"

starry lining and zipper pocket:

me wearing it, ooo, mirror:

i love wearing a democratic bag in nebraska, it got lots of odd looks and questions today, haha.

I love it!

Are you really sure that a floor can't also be a ceiling?

I second the request for a tute!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

I <3 Death Cab! how can u cut up a DCFC t-shirt? (joking)  Cheesy Tongue Hehe..it looks great!

I think it's better if u sew it up sometime soon...you don't want your stuff flying out any time soon in school.


Rules are meant to be broken, and not all problems in life are meant to be resolved...That's why we are all here thinking of new ways to transform ordinary everyday items into quirky cool stuff...Rock on! XXOO

i made sure the glue was really tight and re-glued it, it seems pretty secure for now.  and of course, my sewing machine just decided to break :-(.

and to make it, all i did was use the 'messenger bag with gusset' tutorial, and i put interfacing on the back of the shirt because it was so thin.
