Messenger Bags Galore

October 03, 2006

Image heavy post, here!

The Vancouver Group's chosen project for October is some kind of purse that can be made in multiple sizes. After much deliberation (and input from The Chicken Ladies) I came up with these Messenger Bags.

Many opportunities to pocket them up, use cute quilting fabric, old upholstery fabric and recycled jeans.

The Baby Bag is 6" wide, 5" tall and 2" deep.

The Momma Bag is 12" wide, 10" tall and 3" deep (big enough to hold a pad of paper)

The Papa Bag is 18" wide, 15" tall and 4" deep. This one can hold a smallish rotary cutting mat, plus a whole bunch of whatever else! This one would be great to take to quilting class, doncha think?

These puppies just about kicked my backside. I thought I had A Plan before cutting, but with each one I kept finding easier or more sensible ways of doing things.

Fortunately for the Vancouver ladies, I have borne the pain FOR them. Hopefully the final instructions are practically painless.
