I have a beautiful LuLu Beans Crochet Scarf giveaway happening now!! Please go enter HERE!!!
Well friends, I finally accomplished something that's been on my to-do list for over a year now. I made my own messenger bag!!! I'm thinking I should have attempted to make one a little sooner because I seriously love it!
In typical Melissa fashion, I kind of just winged it and didn't know what I was doing half the time, so I don't really have a tutorial for you.
I folded a piece of drop cloth in half, drew on it with a pencil the shape I knew I wanted my bag, cut it out, hemmed and sewed, added a strap and a pretty piece of vintage lace. I know that makes no sense, but it's really the best I can do - those are "winging it" instructions after all.
Here's how it turned out.........don't look too close......it's not perfect! ;)
I also like the look of the square shaped messenger bags. Maybe in another year I'll get around to making one like that?? We'll see! :)
P.S. If you'd like to see sneak peeks throughout the week and other inspiration, be sure to follow me on Facebook!!
