I had a busy week sewing for the kids. Matching aprons for Madeline and Addie have been on my to do list and Wyatt, who is obsessed with Indiana Jones requested a messenger bag.
I found this great tutorial on Pinterest for the messenger bag.
This tutorial is easy to follow and "Indy" had his bag in less than an hour. I should have made the straps longer as Wyatt is bigger so the bag would hang down lower. It could be mistaken as a purse or a "man bag" if you are Joey. Am I showing my age?
The recent obsession with Indiana Jones began with the completion of an Indiana Jones Lego set a few weeks ago and Daddy and Wyatt playing Lego Indiana Jones every available chance. I found a hat (adult size) at Meijer for $2.50 after Halloween and made the whip out of brown knit fabric (although it still stings a little- ask Luke).
