Messenger Bag

February 1, 2009 at 21:40 pm 4 comments

I just finished another Messenger Bag following the Hip Mama Diaper Bag Tutorial by A Mingled Yarn. This one is for my brother’s girlfriend. She really liked mine and so I made her one too.

This time I adapted the pattern a little bit.

The strap is now adjustable (as it was the first time I did that, I followed the tutorial by You SEW Girl). Also, the interior pockets are now lined, so they are a lot sturdier and prettier. I did the same with the back exterior pocket, where I also lined the exterior fabric part, where the zipper is sewn onto.
Additionally, I added a key ring to the interior.

Otherwise, I used the same fabrics as before: Gunilla (in black/white and orange) by Ikea.

      Thanks for your message! Glad you like my projects =)
      About the fabrics: I mostly by them from Ikea. They offer really nice heavy home dec fabrics (for even better prices) that are great, especially for the bags I usually make.
      The fabrics I used for this particular bag:
      (the black/white and the orange version)
      All the best!
