Upcycled Womans Coat Messenger Bag

What are you most proud of? Each bag comes out looking different even though I use the same pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just play around with placement of pieces to stitch together. Don't think about it too much or it won't be organic.

Q&A with Lesley Stein

DottieDoe asked:
I LOVE this style bag!!! Is it hard to line the flap part?
Lesley Stein answered:
Not at all. This pattern is so easy to use. Since I layered the wool for decorative stitching, I cut away excess fabric so it wasn't bulky.
