I finished the messenger bag and it was quite a challenge. There were virtually no instructions on putting it together. I just had to wing it to figure out how to put it together. I added the lettering and swirls after the bag was put together. Some of it didn't turn out quite the way I had intended but I still think its passable for a bag. The crow was first stamped and then painted. All lettering was done with brush pens.
I decorated the straps with little swirls. This is one of those projects that I think I could evolve over time. The bag piece under the flap is not decorated but I think it might be fun to decorate at a later date. It might be fun to put an inspiring quote that you'd see every time you opened the bag. For now I think I'll use the bag and see how I like it.
