Messenger bag from jeans - continuing stashbusting

This week I continued stashbusting - using a pair of jeans and some co-ordinating fabric, plus a quote I printed onto fabric several months ago and hadn't used!

I followed my own tutorial for 

I cut out all my pieces ok,

but had a bad sewing day and had to use my quick unpick LOTS!
I think after weeks away I'm a bit out of practice with the sewing. Or maybe it was just one of those days...

But I made it in the end and I'm really happy with the finished bag!

Now what to do with it! My girls of course tried to claim it as soon as they came home from school - suggesting we could have it as a communal bag that everyone can use!

I'm thinking of building up my stock as I stashbust this year, and having a market stall or an etsy shop later when I have more things. We'll see.

For now - I'll just keep on sewing and use up that fabric stash!
