Introducing - The Mr Toastee Messenger Bag





Woohoo! I'm finally done, and it only took about a week to make(but it was the only project I was focusing on). This is done completely from a pattern idea from deep down inside my brain. I took notes so I can eventually transcribe them so other folks can make their own ^_^
I really wanted to line it with an uber cute breakfast fabric. I found one, but it was flannel so I wasn't sure how it would work, and it just didn't match as well as I would have liked. I did buy a yard though because it had pancakes and bacon on it, and I figured I could use it for something....as a matter of fact, it's the background in the photos of my bag! I ended up going for this really cute cotton fabric with cups of coffee on it, and little dots of coffee stains(I don't think you can really see that in the pics though).

I am totally going to enter this in the Ephrata fair this year....I smell a blue ribbon...oh wait, maybe I'm smelling toast ^_^
