I was ready for this messenger! When I first sat down with Lisa about her bags and what she wanted I was carrying my Sanctify Messenger Bag, which is a little beat up due to a great night at a live taping of Monday Night RAW! But nonetheless, she saw it and said she wanted one of her bags to be a messenger like that one.
It’s lovely having some previous experience on a product before hand =) Although messengers always present their own special set of issues, it was otherwise a breezy experience. As a matter of fact I think the hardest part of this whole bag was making sure the colors coordinated.
Wait. I lied. I’d like to say that my original intention was to line the front flap with a piece of the orange sweatshirt to tie in the color, in the face of full disclosure, I admit, I was forced to add a piece when I attached it on the bag and the flap wasn’t long enough. It would have been sufficient and functional at the length it was at, but it was not up to my standard of where I WANTED it to fall. So I took the scraps I had remaining after my cutting feast and rallied up a piece big enough to go along the bottom to make the flap up to my specifications.
Happily it worked =) As a matter of fact it adds a little spice to the front of the bag, dotcha think?!
I’m pretty sure this one came out better than my sanctify bag and I’m really proud of it. Maybe this one will be the one Lisa’s daughter uses? Who knows, but I really hope it does get put to good use!
Thanks for taking the time to read this little story =)
*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
