Messenger Bag

So my idea to make birthday presents for friends progressed well until the end of March. I made this messenger bag, following a pattern in Simply Sewing Magazine. I learnt several new skills including putting in a zip and lining and squaring off the corners. I was pleased with the result, but it took a bit of unpicking to get the zip and corners in the right place! I like the combination of the red strap, the blue denim and the white and blue lining.  My friend liked the colours and I think she will use it. It is quite her style. As with other hand-mades, I wouldn’t say that it was particularly cost effective despite both the main and lining fabrics being remnants that I had picked up locally.  However, I’ve got some good sized d-rings for future makes!
