I have been busy making a bag for my husband this week and finally got it finished !
He saw this fantastic atlas fabric on norfolk textiles website and decided it would make a great bag - It is a much bigger messenger bag than I would normally make but he specified the size ! It also took a lot of careful cutting to get the maps right !
Europe and Africa on the front flap
North America and Canada under the flap
South Africa on the back of the bag
Lined with stripy print fabric - complete with 5 pockets !! - One large zip pocket at the back of the bag, 2 small zip pockets at the front, and 2 elasticated top pockets, along with 2 ribbons with trigger clips for keys or cases.
I also made a matching headphone case and glasses case.
Most importantly he was very happy with the bags.
As anyone who has ever made a bag will know, putting in all the pockets is the bit which takes the longest - I was cursing by the time I had finished the last pocket but now it is finished, I am starting to think it would make a great nappy changing bag - may have to make another one soon !
I am going to include this bag in Handmade Monday
