Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.
Last year Amanda was looking for a messenger tote bag for her to use on her field trip. No matter how hard we looked in stores and online we weren't able to find one that was the right size. So I decided I would attempt to make one. Since we weren't able to find a pattern for the style of bag she wanted I just made it up as we went along. The finished product was not perfect but was pretty good for my first attempt. Here are some photos of the bag.
The bag has adjustable strap and can be worn cross body.
Before sewing in the interior lining and pockets I used some fusible webbing to give it structure.
It has 7 interior pockets of various sizes with one of them having a zipper.

Have you ever tried making a bag for yourself or a friend? What did you blog about today?
