Remember the freezer paper stencil from a few days ago? Here's what I did with it!
sorry for more crappy rainy day pics
I used mmmcrafts free basic messenger bag pattern, which I can't say enough good things about. I've tried to make a messenger bag in the past and it was all sorts of disaster, so I was a little scared to try this one.
I was scared for nothing though because Larissa's instructions are crystal clear and straight up dummy proofed. If I can do it, anybody can do it.
The outer fabric is that $5 corduroy that I've been using, the lining is leftover (from THIS project) home dec weight fabric from Ikea. Since the corduroy is fairly light, I also used fusible web to stiffen it up a bit.
The bag has a nice substantial weight to it, which I love. I want to take it everywhere with me! After seeing the finished product, hubby is ok with crafting with freezer paper now, heehee.
