As soon as I finished making the first I knew I wanted to make more so I cut two of them. So here's my second Campfire Messenger Bag.
For this one I used a dark gray twill as the main fabric, accents with a black quilting fabric and flap with a canvas print. I used webbing for the strap. I was visiting a friend the other day and she had a big piece of this Collage Fabric Canvas Print I used for the flap. I fell in love with it and she gave me a piece. Don't I have great friends? The fabric has different New York images like the Statue of Liberty, the yellow taxis, Christler building (sideways on the bottom right of the flap) and some subway signs. The weird thing is that it also included an image of Elvis and another of Marilyn Monroe!! LOL I decided to use just the New York images. Oh; and my friend gave me two other fabrics that are awesome too. You'll see them soon.
I used a 1-1/2" webbing for the strap since I have some in my stash. Gotta use what I have first! The strap holders were also made of the webbing.
I found out my electronic tablet fits in the back pocket laying sideways. So even if you have an iPad it will fit in that pocket. I used Pellon SF101 and Thermolam as interfacings again. Love the look of the snaps. I'm not afraid of them any more. This bag is available for purchase in my shop: www.NormasBagBoutique.Etsy.com
The third Campfire is halfway done but I ran out of 1"rectangles and I'm waiting for them.
