A Re-Design

I was working on an order for a lovely brown messenger last Saturday and realized, upon finishing, that I had veered off track and re-designed the Messenger Bag. This has been on my list of things to do for quite some time so I'm glad this order's production happened on a weekend. Had it been during the week, I surely would have sped through, made the same bag (which is a great bag) and not have allowed my self the space to wander. The results are good. Really good, actually! I worked out several changes, all of which will make for a much more functional (and better looking) bag.

I won't say a lot about it because I think the design speaks for itself. Small changes to the proportions and a bit of added hardware (all with a purpose) make for a well designed and functional bag. I'm hoping to have them available in the shops by early next week. I would love to hear what you think!


  1. This is what I have been waiting for. Simply beautiful. Can't wait to order my own... Thanks.

    The hardware is interesting. It looks as if you have to string it through and then snap it. Is that true?

  2. I love the fabric colors. Maybe a tartan lined version as well? I'm on a bit of a plaid/tartan kick at the moment. Well done! It's great to wander during design.

  3. This is so lovely, Wendy! But now I have a problem - do I get a market bag in that fabulous rosewood cord or a messenger bag? Oh, the decisions!

    Looking forward to the new design being posted in your shop so I can decide and then place an order. :)
