Sally Sews Something! My New Blog.....

Sew, this is my new blog where I hope to post some sewing projects and perhaps put up a "How I made...." or two.

In the meantime here is a bag I made using the tutorial found here:
Link to Noodlehead Tutorial: Messenger Bag

Computer page up and materials selected.  Old pair of grey work trousers for the main body, a couple of pink fabrics and my first ever home made bias binding (green) made using this tutorial

Close up of those fabrics

I cut the grey pieces at a slight angle, so the leg seam is diagonal.  Also added a pocket with a few folded pleats for fun.

Front flap details almost done. 

Cutting the panels for the front and back of the bag. 

Oh and I forgot to take more photos, and so suddenly you can see the end product!

Ta Da!
