Messenger Bag for a couple of hours last weekend, but you can see that I've made outstanding progress. I finished cutting out all of the pieces (I rotary cut the lining and canvas pieces), and machine basted the canvas to the exterior. Then I trimmed the seam allowances of the canvas to minimize seam bulk. There's one piece of fabric that is either extra or that still needs a canvas backing--I'll figure that out as I go along, I guess. Anyway, after all of that work, I have just completed Step Three of this pattern. Out of something like 17 steps. Maybe I should have picked out a Christmas fabric?
