It's not a handbag, oh no! It's a man-bag!
I whipped it up this morning for Paul from 2 pairs of his old cargo shorts. I thought he could do with a a bag that looked cool and was big enough to carry his bits & pieces and some of the kid's stuff (snacks, nappies, wipes...you get the idea).
My most favourite part of the bag is the groovy looking robot patch sewn on the front. It is a drawing by my 4 year old daughter done using fabric textas. There is also a pretty cool looking button that matches quite nicely that I picked out after rummaging through a bag of buttons I bought at Vinnies for $2. Click on the top picture for a closer look.
And a handy spot for his keys made from one of the belt holders.
Even though I didn't actually follow the tutorial, I got the idea from here: messenger bag tutorial.
