New York State of Mind!

As you all know (from an earlier post) I am going on my first ever bus trip to NY this Saturday (can I say again how excited I am) so I decided to make a little messenger bag to take along. I didnt want to lug around my big ole' bag. You know....the mommy one....the one that holds EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink, though some days by how heavy it is I think its in there too! So this is what I came up with....my new messenger bag pattern.


it has a magnetic snap closure flap and its cute, cute, cute
(if I do say so myself)



a nice long handle so it can fit across the chest comfortabley


and my favorite......lots of pockets to hold all the essentials. I put in pockets just for my drivers license (can I say that I hate the fact that blogger no longer has a spell check on here...I just had to google license to see if I spelled it right) and credit cards so I dont even have to carry a wallet and it has two bigger pockets for my cell phone and camera.


so what do ya think?

Very nice! I love the style! I'm trying to build up the courage to try make a wee bag for myself. My handbag is a giant black hole. I loose everything in there!

I think I need one of those! It is quite the bag for traveling...

It will be so easy to have everything right there - and not be a huge purse thing...
