Believe it or not, two of my kids go back to school next week! I've been promising to make my princess a messenger bag since sometime last year, so the time finally came this week. I couldn't find a pattern I absolutely loved, so i looked at some and then decided to forge ahead and come up with one of my own, with some influence from some I did like.
This is the end result.
It's is hard to see, but I put clear vinyl over the orange fabric on the sides. She usually puts a water bottle in the side pocket and I thought the vinyl would help protect the stuff in the middle of her bag.
This is the first time I tried these. Easy! I love them!
This is the embroidery she wanted.
She picked out the fabrics from my "stash". I LOVE Heather Bailey fabric!
The inside. Not great pics, but I think you get the idea...
I'll miss her!
