Yesterday I finally tackled making a messenger bag. This is another one (of millions) of those projects on my list, so even though it's not 100% what I want it to be at least I got it done!
It actually came out pretty darn good for the first try. The outside is brown cotton duck canvas and the flap and interior lining are this great tree print. I love the brown and blue together.
It is a bit slouchy, so next time I'll use some more internal layers to give it more structure. The front zip pocket welt isn't as perfect as I like it. Something others probably wouldn't notice, but my inner control freak notices. Future bags will also have more pockets.
If you are interested in this bag I'm selling it for $20. Sold--Thanks! That includes Priority Mail shipping to US addresses.
Here are the dimensions:
7' zip pocket
52" adjustable strap
Email me quick, before I change my mind and keep it for myself!
