A new bag for me!
My previous Messenger Bag was starting to look a little worn out, so I cut off the hardware and reused the cinch buckle and slide/rectangle ring. The hardware still looked brand new, but the fabric had seen better days.
The fabric I used for this is an organic chambray from Fabric Depot. I bought this in the store and I don't see it available on their site. This fabric is heavier and more coarse than the chambray shirting fabric I've had in the past. It would be scratchy for clothing, but is perfect for a bag!
I should make more of these bags. They really don't take very long to sew once the cutting prep work is done. I did drag my feet over cutting out the long strap pieces (had to make space on my cutting table for the fabric!), but it probably took less than 3-hours to make this bag.
Next I'm going to make another of the smallest size--size 3--like this one.
