In case you guys don't know, Doctor Who is my favorite TV show. And I'm currently involved with a Doctor Who Swap on Craftster and I've been spending a good part of the last two weeks making things for my partner. I have four things completed and a 5th in process, so I've really been in a Doctor Who crafty mood. I can't finish the last item until it stops snowing (partner, if you're reading this, here's a hint: spray paint!).I had some left over fabric and decided to make something for myself! I really, really needed a bag for one day and weekend trips to hold my books, art profolio, pencil case, camera, etc. So this was born!
A Doctor Who Messenger Bag and Accessories!
With all the items, the outer layer is made of duck cloth, the lining and most of the binding were made from a white sheet, and in between both was a tapestry kind of fabric to make it stronger. I stenciled the pictures on and hand painted them with fabric paint.
This is the first messenger bag I've made. I didn't have a pattern for the size I wanted, so I made my own pattern for it. It measures 12x16 because I needed it big enough to carry my 11x17 art profolio. My kitty was insisting that he be in the picture.
