Messenger Bag!

I have been sewing again and I am super excited about the messenger bag that I am sharing with you today. Last week I mentioned that I had a project that I had completed and couldn't share and this is it. I was asked to make this for a birthday girl and I really wasn't sure what I was going to make until I started it. I was asked to make a messenger style bag with a longer strap that would hit about waist length. One of the things I added to this bag is the flap that allows it to close and also it is reversible yes reversible! How cool is that. I added buttons on the inside and out so that it can easily be closed. The bag is of course made with the Square Scallop Die and the Big Shot. There are 22 squares in the purse so you need to cut out 44 total because each is double sided. This is a great size for a every day bag or for a teenager.You can see from the pictures that one side is smooth and the other has the scalloped edge that will fray as you wash it. Both are a different look for your different moods. which do you prefer? If you would like a messenger bag of your own contact me and I will be happy to make one for you.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and let me know if you have an idea for a bag. I love a challenge and will be happy to give your idea a try. Now back to more stamping, Tonya
