    Bag for a friend

    A friend asked me to make a messenger cross body bag for her. She bought the fabric and told me what size she would like. Here is what I came up with but now am afraid she might not like it. Giving it to her tomorrow and then I can get back to my quilts. Already told her never ever, ever to ask for a bag again. LOL
    What do you think? Maybe I just don't like messenger bags. Thanks for looking.Name:  messenger 004.JPG

    Love it - great job on the piping around the bag.

    I piped my first cushion cover on the weekend and I think that it will be my last - very fiddly and time consuming.

    I think it's great and I would buy it if she doesn't like it.

    Thanks everyone, I will be taking it to her today. It is far from perfect but I think she will be happy.

    I think you made exactly what she wanted and it looks wonderful. You did a great job. I think us quilters tend to be way to hard on ourselves. I'm sure she will love it. Let us know her reaction.

    Looks great ! She picked the fabric & it certainly looks like a messenger bag. She will love it.
