What was your inspiration?
Previously, I had a Vera Bradley small messenger bag as my daily purse. But after a year's worth of wearing, it was starting to look a little beat up, so I was on the hunt to find something similar sized, but more durable and would go with more things. After searching online, I couldn't quite find something I liked, that was the right size, had enough pockets, wasn't too busy looking, etc. I then found these plain messenger bags at Hobby Lobby and found the Craftster tutorial on how to add the lining.
What are you most proud of?
Figuring out how to modify the tutorial instructions to fit the size of my messenger bag as well as adding pockets, with my limited sewing knowledge.
