I needed a new school bag this semester and I had Amy Butler's High Street Messenger Bag pattern in my stash. I really like Amy Butler bags but the amount of pockets can be drag to sew.
This patterns called for a heavy weight decorator fabric but I think the fabric I chose was much too heavy, I'm surprised my machine made it through all the layers!
I designed the apple appliqué and cut it out of velvet remnants I found at the fabric store.
All in all I'm pleased with it, I have gotten lots of compliments at school and all those pockets come in handy!
