I love fall….love plaid…and decided I needed a bag that could carry all my stuff AND my bigger knitting projects.  (Weekend football games demand some knitting in hand.)  So, I decided to sew myself a messenger bag!

The pattern is a See and Sew B4583.

I used a canvas for the outside and red wool from my stash for the inside.

And me in all my glory?  Yes, that is a piece of tape on my leg.  I picked that up at work.  Thankfully I didn’t stop anywhere on the way home!  Looking at this photo, hair pulled back in a pony, WHO DO I THINK I AM?  I am a 47-year-old woman with no fashion sense carrying a plaid messenger bag.  I need help.
