What are you most proud of? That the bags came out very good and the looked good too - I got a few compliments already. I think with this kind of bags I finally found the bags that I want to sell, (Now I must just get old Denims!!!!) For the fun of it I sew on the labels from the denims I used. For more information and details about the Messenger Bags I make, please see my blog and website: Website: http://www.bag-a-poncho.co.za/ Blog: http://bag-a-poncho.blogspot.com/ What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient - it take a long time to lay out the pattern on the pieces of the denim and to cut the pockets to put in the bag - I used the back pockets of the denim for the inside pockets. Use the correct needle.
