Messenger Bag Challenge


Tonight I am posting my last monthly challenge for Art Gallery Fabrics.  So sad!  Our challenge this month was to create a messenger bag.  I wanted something sleek and modern without sacrificing usefulness.  Cool modern fabric, an awesome button, a cool design, and I think I hit it.  There are pockets-a-plenty –, a place to hold your pens, water bottle, phone, several note pads, and multiple cards or id’s.  The strap is adjustable from 29″-51″ so it will fit all sizes across the body.

I won the August apron challenge.  The prize — 10 yards of free fabric.  Woo hoo!!  If you know how much I love fabric, you understand how much I really like that prize.


I have thoroughly enjoyed the monthly challenges.  I have definitely learned a lot and have pushed myself to design my own pattern each month.  Some months had me sitting here with a perplexed look on my face for a short time while trying to figure out how something would best be put together.  My husband would laugh at me, but I would eventually figure it out.  I also enjoyed seeing what everyone else made.  We had some very creative folks.  I’m really going to miss this.  AGF has a really cool blog and they have a group of designers call the Fat Quarter Gang that post weekly tutorials.  Go check it out… I’m sure you’ll find something you like.

Anyway, wish me luck!
