I was looking around for something quick and self gratifying to make and a free pattern from Issue 10 of Mollie Makes, a really nice crafty and handmade magazine caught my eye.
It was a Messenger Bag made from vintage fabrics. The one they had photographed was all ‘ditsy prints‘ (or whatever) and it was really pretty.
I wanted it, I wanted THEIR ONE!
Alas I had no gorgeous vintage fabrics but I did have some remnants from the curtain department in Mandors which are great for bags because the fabric tends to be a bit heavier and stronger and if you’re anything like me that’s a must because I do not go easy on bags! (see post on other blog)
I downloaded the templates from the Molly Makes website and sadly my remnants were a bit too small but I made a couple of adjustments and it worked out fine…
