Messenger Bags

Good Morning to all of you, I have been keeping myself busy. I have been making wool messenger bags. Here is a photo of my beautiful daughter with her new bag. I made this for her and was happy to receive the photo yesterday and know that she is happy with the bag.

I have been using repurposed wool. I have enjoyed taking suit jackets from the thrift store and making them into bags. The wool washes beautifully and I line them with fun fabric.

I am also so excited because next weekend our daughter will be coming to join her father for a conference (work related) late next week. So I will also get to have some time with her. Which always makes me happy! She is a 10 hour drive from us and whenever we can get sometime together it is always special.


  1. Yah, I am sure you will all have so much fun.
    Great looking bag

  2. she's so pretty!! how about a picture of her in that snazzy cape!

  3. What a pretty young lady! You must be very proud of her!
    Love that messenger bag too. Would you mind sharing the pattern? Great idea to recycle the wool!


  4. Lovely bag, and beautiful daughter! Have fun visiting!
