I’m bringing back more retro technology! x3 I’ve already got the Floppy Disk Coasters and tablet case that looks like an old school Gameboy, now boom boxes get a chance to shine! Ahh, the hours I used to spend recording my favorite songs from the radio while sitting in front of my stereo 🙂 I admit the design looks pretty funky and goofy, but I still like it ^-^ In fact, I made it just for me really. I have a few old reliable messenger bags that I think might be ready to put out to pasture, so I wanted to make sure my newest big bag had all the organization I need to keep things in line.
This bag sports a back zipper pocket, loads of inner pockets, and a detachable shoulder strap so I can switch between carrying in my hand or over my shoulder at will. Of course the front is covered with awesome colorful appliqué, and there’s also decorative piping to give it that extra punch 😀
This bag is a total throwback to my high school days 😀 I can totally see myself using a bag like this when I was in high school, where I absolutely loved plaid (still do, I just try to be more subtle about it) and anything remotely resembling something punk.
The fabric is actually a leftover from some plaid pants I made back in the day, and the rest of the fabrics and the zipper seemed to match so well I couldn’t help but put them all together even if they do look a little loud. The structure of the bag itself is pretty reliable, as it mimics the purse I use regularly today. So you could totally switch out the fabrics with something more subtle and it still makes a great bag.
This is a square shaped messenger style bag with a long shoulder strap, small handle, front pocket, turn lock closure, and flap pocket with an exposed slanted zipper. Because of all the details it takes a while to get it all together, but I use a purse shaped much like this everyday and love it to death 😀 I hope you will too.
