Happy Birthday To Me!

I recently purchased a new craft book entitled the New Handmade by Cassie Barden. I purchased the book because of one bag shown on the cover. Shockingly I actually made the bag as a birthday present to myself. For a first try I think it came out great.

I found the instruction simple to follow and the only trouble i had was sewing the front of the bag together. the bulk of fabrics was difficult for my old machine and the iron-on interfacing kept snagging in the machine. Other than that it came together very nicely.

I also think your messenger bag came together nicely! I have that book too and I have been enjoying it quite a bit! Oh, Happy Birthday to you!
