Messenger Bags

Hello there!
Is the long weekend really over already?! We had four days of mid to upper 70-degree weather, a lot of sunshine, forsythias and cherry trees were starting to bloom, the grass is green now. And all that came a whopping four weeks earlier than usual. Awesome. I am loving it. But, I am sure we will get one more April Snow Shower sooner or later.
And, of course, the kids had fun hunting for easter eggs and little presents. They are now slowly coming down from their 3-day-sugar-rush.

Many Birthdays are happening around here right now. For some of them I decided to make messenger bags this year.

Hannah Montana and Fancy Nancy for two of my nieces.

And Lizard-Camo for Yanic.

Yanic's bag is a bid wider than the other two and has an added zipper pocket on the back.

All bags have a magnetic snap closure and inside pockets as well. The printed fabric is regular cotton and the solid colors are Duckcloth to make the bags extra sturdy (hopefully). For the two basic ones I used this easy to follow tutorial at Fishsticksandfries and modified the pattern for Yanic's bag.

Have a great week. I will be back soon with another project I worked on last week. It's pretty cool. Just wait 'til you see it.
