If you remember I gave you a few snap shots in a previous post hinting at what I was working on. Over the weekend I finished the project and I have the final images for you today. May I present to you the Khaki Messenger Bag.
The outer shell was made from R’s discarded khaki’s. The lining is from a pair of teal colored Thai Fisherman’s pants that my sister E gave to me. It’s the same material as the straps. For the pocket’s I used the scraps from a sweater I repurposed a while back.
I used some metal loops to create the adjustable strap. Although I am never truly satisfied with what I make, I am fairly pleased with how this turned out.
I have to say, that I just love crafting. The one evening I came home from work in a funk and I started to work on this bag. Nearly instantly I was in a better mood. It was as if my care’s were lifted off of me. Who else feels this way when they work on their craft? It is a wonderful feeling.
