Task number 12 on my 2nd quarter FAL list was to lengthen the strap on my mini messenger bag that I pattern tested for Katy.
I love the bag but the strap is shoulder length rather than cross body.
I very rarely wear a bag on my shoulder, I love to have my hands free. The bag has been hanging on the door right by my sewing desk, taunting me with it’s ‘short’ strap so today I unpicked the strap added a piece 12″ long and stitched it back together again.
It’s perfect and so a month after making the bag I can actually use it!
I’m delighted to have the 1st item ticked off my list!
