A few years back I won a messenger bag pattern by Candied Fabrics during the Blogger's Quilt Festival. The pattern is available in 2 sizes and gives lots of pockets options. I had pre-cut all my pieces for both bags during the holidays and prepared them with the interfacing I was going to use so it was *JUST* a matter of sitting at the sewing machine and stitching, *just*!
I started by constructing the multiple pockets for the bag which took a few evenings like the bottle pocket
and eventually on Monday I sat down with all the pieces and a fast-apporaching deadline as the bag needed to be finished for the following evening.
And I made it! I used Decovil for this bag (that was my first try).
The drape is nice and the bag is sturdy but it was also very hard to turn it back to the right side once finished! I had to ask hubby to do it for me and to model it too!
It makes the layers quite thick too so I was glad I have a strong sewing machine. But I also really like the finish of the bag and would most probably use it again in the future.
For Miss Baby I had found a coated fabric
