Now, This is what I wanted to make the first time. Its another Mabel Messenger, but in a fabric I totally love and with a few modifications. It took me a weekend but could have easily been accomplished in one day, if you aren't watching Season 4 of Battlestar Galactica while sewing. (Btw, Wow! What a way to end season 4! When is 4.5 coming out on dvd???)
So, without further adieu, Mabel Messenger Redux:
Ext. Fabric: Amy Butler in Coriander Pine
Int. Fabric: ??? Heavy weight cotton of some sort ???
Modifications: Strap Extender is 2" longer, added interior patch pocket made out of ext. fabric scraps b/c I am all about the pockets, added an extra inch to all sides of the closure flap.
Incidentally, If anyone likes the original I made in pink, let me know and I'll send it to you! 🙂
