Couldn't wait to share this one, it's awesome!!
The bag is normally called a Messenger Bag well I just like to call a square bag.
I'm so excited finishing it after a few wrong doings but completing the project is very satisfying.
I took extra care in getting the floral motifs to line up. As the material is our batik Terengganu I had to make use of the different designs between the kepala kain and the badan kain, then there's the border design.
So the typical kepala kain or lined up triangle shape is used for the bag front. The badan kain is used for the rest of the bag including it's lining. For the handle I used the border and catch the cute turquoise blue flower to align the whole length of the bag handle. Of course the bag is interfaced to give it it's form. The bag has two outside front pockets sized enough to slip in an envelope or two. It has an outside back pocket across the width of the back. For clasping the flap hook and loop is used.
Hmmm.... Love it!
