30 Day Pinterest Craft Challenge - Day 2 - Messenger Bag

 I made this cupcake themed messenger bag yesterday afternoon for Day 2 of my self-imposed 30 Day Pinterest Craft Challenge.  It was inspired by this reversible messenger bag by Crazy Little Projects.  In true me fashion, these pins generally serve as inspiration before I end up changing it somewhat.  I had in mind my just-turned 8 year old niece when I came across the pin for the reversible bag.  I changed it up slightly by making it a larger bag and adding two front pockets and making the bag non-reversible.  I used some retired Robert Kaufman cupcake fabric and just brown and turquoise dot fabric for the lining.  I also used interfacing to give the bag some stability.  I am really pleased with how this bag turned out and I hope that Ali likes it too.  I definitely want to make one for me now!
