Drafting a new messenger bag template.
Foam floor underlayment resist.
Variegated blue, purple and teal roving, and a piece of sheer silk fabric.
Covering the resist in layers of wool roving...plus one layer of cotton gauze
(on the bottom section of the bag, only!)
I'm pretty sure that having a three-part blog post...
...is just about going to kill my friend, Kelly!
(She already feels tortured when I make her wait for a Part 2!! Giggle.)
And before you all start thinking that I've 'gone to the blue side' or something...
...this project was not for me, but was made for a blog friend who loves these colors the way I love ORANGE!
You'll notice that the shape of this resist is quite different than the rectangular one I used for my last messenger bag...
...a deliberate choice, so as to avoid having to cut and re-sew the handle!
Next time, I'll show you how I added the silk, trimmed the handle...
...and fashioned the inner pocket!
