Messenger Bags: H.K.+Checkers

There was once a time a days ago when I was looking through Ebay for messenger bags. I was incredibly jealous that I didn't have one and that the bags online were SO expensive, and I was currently in the middle of paying off an almost-$300-8th-grade-dance-dress. I was in a pickle.

So, naturally, I decided to do the unthinkable and make my own bag. And it turned out... like a bag. Which was surprising. :D

I made the pink one two days ago. It's made from an old oversized Hello Kitty pajama t-shirt. I also pinned and hooked a bunch of stuff to it, like safety pins on the strap. It took about two hours to make.

The checkered one I made about half an hour ago. My friend Megan is paying me ten buckeroos for it, yay! She provided the cloth and button :) Its strap is a bit longer than mine and the bag part is bigger. This took about one hour to make.

So if you like to make things, kids, get a sewing machine next Christmas. It's lotsa funnn.

aekgjsdgnsnhsldk!!! They are the most adorable things in the world!! I would make one but no one knows how to use my sewing machine and my grandma accidently threw away the manual/instructions... ;-; But great job! You should sell some on ebay or something!

I made it up as I went, the only other thing I've really ever made is a crappy arm-warmer. Thanks :)
