Step 3?

ButlerCollage0226

I only worked on the 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?

You're getting there! I love that fabric - I may have to steal that messenger bag when you're all finished!

Before you get too many more steps into that, would you mind bringing it in so I can look at it? I'm confused about some of the steps for the Nappy Bag...

That is going to be one very cool messenger bag! Looks complicated, but you're figuring it out!
