I made a messenger bag before, but wanted to add a bit of “oomph” to it. For this go around, I chose black corduroy for the exterior, and used neon-lime-green thread for the stitching and matching lime green fabric for the interior. I attempted to machine embroider a robot design of my own creation (using standard sewing machine, not with an embroidery machine) and made a mistake right along the top of the mouth box. Luckily it was near center and ended up looking like a nose. Phew!
corduroy, cotton, zippers, interfacing, and a d-ring and slide to adjust the strap.
