What advice would you give someone starting this project? Google - no time to sew messenger bag tutorial by Aleah, as this is where I found the most easy to follow instructions for this project. Thanks to the craftsy design your own handbag course, I was able to learn the basics inorder to put it all together. Thanks Aleah and Brett Bara!

Thank you Brett! Great to get your feedback. Thanks to your wonderful sewing course , I feel I have learnt so much and can apply those skills to any number of handbag designs. I can't totally take the credit for this handbag design however, it was a pattern I found online by a lady named Aleah- no time to sew messenger bag . That's cool that you also have the ikea fabric! Cheers Judy
