Laura's Messenger Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I loved the way the front flap turned out. The snap lock was a bit tricky to work out in terms of placement so that the flap would sit in the perfect position. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Good planning of entire design before cutting anything!!! If using denim , get heavy sewing machine needles particularly for denim.

What you will need

  • Recycled denim-( a pair of mens jeans)
  • new cotton fabric- called Golden Garden
  • by Alexander Henry
  • light and medium weight interfacing
  • recycled handbag hardware and strap from second hand handbags.
