My first messenger bag!
I found the tutorial here on mmmcrafts. so I had to try!
The bag is made from a Dunn Bros Coffee bag. (with and iron-on interfacing) The lining is from a huge roll of navy blue nylon I found at Hidden Treasures! (my fave thrift shop!)
I made the pocket inside the flap from an old pair of Jonah's jeans. The strap is from the local arm-navy store. And, of course the thread came from the stash in my basement. The only new material in this bag is the interfacing.
I really should keep this one for the soon-to-open ETSY shop, but I think I'll give SIL Leslie first dibs, since she did her semester abroad in Kenya. Plus I've learned a bit about centering the logo for the flap! Otherwise the whole bag took me about an hour, and the directions were really helpful!
