Definitely food poisoning. I can't even think about what I ate yesterday. The dude wouldn't let me go to work today after a night of turning my guts inside out.

Speaking of inside out...KJ wanted to see the inside of the bag.

Under the flap--this pocket was in the original pattern.

Inside I added extra pockets for a pen (that was a mistake, I made the cell pocket too small), sunglasses, and a cell phone. I based these on the original pattern but guesstimated the sizes. I put the second cell phone pocket on sideways, but I have to say it's easier to get the phone out of a horizontal pocket than a vertical one. In the photo on the left, it looks like that corner isn't sewn properly but I just can't muster the energy to take a better picture.

The pattern is from The Village at Chelsea Lane.

Ugh, sorry about the food poisoning. I don't think I've ever had it and I really don't want to try it. ;) Thanks for the extra pics of the messenger bag; I enjoyed them, even if I'm not the one who asked for them.

Hope you're over your food poisoning. All I can say about the bag--SWEET! It's great.

Food poisoning sucks.

I ate a bad batch of pre-packaged deli turkey once and purged my innards for what seemed like a LOOONG time. Not fun!

What's really annoying about food poisoning is that there isn't a darn thing you can do about it, you're just along for the ride.

Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Yikes--hope you feel better--have you noticed that if you feel well enough to even look at a magazine between bouts of purging, how many food ads there are, and how disgusting they seem? Nice bag!

Yikes! Hope you are feeling better today : )

Love your bag!! btw, is the pocket for your RED pen? The post, typo hunt, was a scream!!

Redwitch said...

Really hope you're feeling better and have stopped imitating scenes from The Exorcist?

That's how I felt when I had food poisoning anyway, damned mussels, can't touch 'em now.

V.cute bag, hope that you're up and out sashaying around town showing it off now?

So sorry to hear about the food poisoning - I had it too not long ago. Makes you want to just give up. I am in awe of your sewing skills! A bag like this looks really hard - especially with pockets of all sorts. This brings us to the end of another week in review of posts!

Nice bag! Love the fabrics. What a bummer about the food poisoning. That's awful!
