Description

Fucshia wide-wale corduroy messenger bag lined with cotton. I bound the exposed interior seams with purple satin left over from a prom dress. I added several pockets inside with tab/button closures. The buttons are huge and colorful. Daughter #2 wanted a slouchy, sloppy bag, no structure. I adapted a commercial pattern (which I’ll add when I dig it out again. This is the fourth bag I’ve made from the same pattern. Three of them for daughter #2, one for son.

      Thanks! My buttonholer didn’t make buttonholes big enough, so I had to freehand them. Thankfully, I had the patience that day to make it wotk.
