While this post is about a week overdue, I'm excited to finally share the photos of my new messenger bag…aka radio reporter gear bag.
I finished it a few weeks ago and would like to think that I've been the envy of everyone at work.
There are a few fun details I'd like to point out as well. The front pockets are pleated…which was an awesome technique I learned from another pattern. And rather than traditional buckles or buttons, I used overall fasteners as closures.
As far as fabric goes, I chose a tone on tone print from our Chantilly line for the exterior, but decided to have a little more fun with the lining!
I like to think of it as the messenger bag equivalent of a mullet…business on the outside party on the inside.
So that's my show-and-tell…now it's your turn! What projects have you been working on with our fabric?
