I made this bag using a super easy tutorial by Meg of Elsie Marley. It’s called “the awesome bag”, and for good reason. It’s reversible, and the strap is adjustable… It uses 2 different fabrics- using only a 1/2 yard of each, which is…. dare i say it- awesome. There are 5 buttons going up each side of the bag, so you can adjust the strap length to your liking. Make it long, and it’s like a messenger bag- or keep it short, and it’s more like a handbag.
It is completely reversible- the strap as well…. (that means there are… 20 buttons in all- 10 on the outside, 10 on the inside. yowza.) So, you can change it up based on your outfit or your mood. The inside fabric on mine is a khaki linen, and the outside is some Japanese fabric that I’ve been wondering what to do with for a long time…. it’s by Echino. I think this was the perfect project for it.
I’m not sure if I’ll keep this one for myself, or give it away… I have it in mind for a friend who happens to be…. you guessed it- awesome.
