I had bookmarked this Messenger Bag by Made by Rae on a guest post for Punkin Pattern ages ago when she first posted it.
I thought it would make the perfect Kindergarten bag since there's no homework at this age at his school, so the only thing he has to carry home besides his lunch box is information or work from school.
I took Mr. P. to F and S with me to pick out whatever fabric he wanted. He choose this army green faux suede and a pirate print for the inside pocket.
With each project I complete I learn something new, but with this project, the learning curve was way bigger than it's been in a while!
What I came away with from this project is that the details really can take a great idea and make it superb. I love all the of repeat stitching lines in a color that pops! It was a simple theme repeated throughout the bag.
I hope he enjoys it as much as I do!!
I had him pose with the bag, telling him to make the kind of face he thinks kindergartners make:
