I fell off the Zakka Style Sew Along wagon
a few weeks ago,
but jumped back on this week!
I love messenger bags,
but have always been a little scared to make one.
I've made lots of bags,
but for some reason I just couldn't get my head
around how to make the flap work!The instructions in the Zakka Style book are great,
but I wish I would have used a stiffer interfacing,
or interfaced the lining, too -- my bag is a bit floppy.
I whipped this up yesterday,
and didn't have the hardware on hand to make an adjustable handle.
So I just figured out how long I'd like it
(47 inches was perfect),
to make it fairly easy to wear across my body.
Fabrics are linen (a blue/charcoal color)
and Reunion by Sweetwater.
What a fun bag!
