girly messenger.

I made this little bag for a bride-to-be to take on her destination wedding. I love how it turned out. It is roomy, sturdy, and light-weight. Even though I am not the girliest of girls, I have always loved the combination of pink and grey. I have had this floral fabric for a while and never knew quite what to do with it. When this project popped up, It was actually the first fabric I grabbed out of the stash.


The underside of the flap shown here, I also made a double pocket inside out of the same fabric. I love the little patch! I hope you all enjoy the last few hours of the weekend.....
~Happy Sewing!
