Messenger Bag by Madame

Ah, well, I HAVE created a monster! One like Elmo or Kermit or even the Stay-Puff man from Ghostbusters! (as I show my age) Anyway, Madame is itching everyday for a project, on this day (Friday) She decided it would be a messenger bag. Perfect! I didn't realize how hard it was to come up with simple sew projects that are worth while. She had easily whipped up a pillow (which is awaiting a foam form) and a strip quilt would be a bit to much to do independently, I did not want her to exhaust her happily found fabric at Goodwill, so here was her suggestion. I talked her through making it reversible. The above photo shows the two selected fabrics that were sewn together with right sides facing one another, then turned right side out through a 4 inch gap.
Then it's a envelope fold with a strap done in the same method as the bag (right sides together, turn), attach the strap where the flap folds. I really like the peace side and not the skulls and roses, but....I was a kid once too!
