I desperately want to design an amazing messenger bag for busy Mom’s. As mother of three, I am always toting around water bottles, video players, diapers, my nook, and a whole slew of other things. I am past the stage of diaper bags, or at least I like to think that I am, 🙂 but I still need a versatile bag to store all the many necessities of life. Preferably one that would keep my hands free for my children.
I have not found the perfect messenger bag anywhere and have decided that if I design my own pattern, I will need to learn how to sew pockets, add zippers, line bags, attach magnetic buttons, create slots for MP3 players, and slip in a few other accesories that are fun. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to do many of these things. Sooo… I decided to start small and make this cute little Amy Butler Coin Purse pattern. It seemed complicated at first, but now that I’ve made one, I think it would be easier to replicate.
It is a start, and that is really all that matters. I think it turned out well! YAY!
