A few months ago we were preparing to leave for California and I decided I needed a new bag. I hadn't made a bag for myself in forever and I would certainly need something for the trip. It had to be large, with lots of pockets and comfortable to carry across the country and then all over.
Here we have a messenger style bag with lots of inner pockets for my iPad, pens, pencils, cell phone, camera, Kleenex and all my hubby's junk. Drink holder on the side and zippered pocket on the front for Important Stuff. I knew I had a cool charm to use as a zipper pull but of course that was no where to be found.
An inside shot. You can tell by the collection of assorted junk in there that I've been carrying it for a while.
I love going through my old bags and finding all that "bonus" money collecting on the bottom and in the pockets.
Fabric: Assorted Amy Butler prints
Pattern: My own design
And also not one other person in Carmel, CA, was carrying a bag like this. Or even anything close. I could say because it was unique and original, but I think the truth of the matter is that designer leather bags were The bag to be carried.
