Mini Messenger

This pattern came to me in the May/June McCall's Quilting magazine. The designer is Darci Wright. It's just an adorable way to tote your Ipad/Kindle or any other small electronic device. It can go across the chest so there's no falling off of your shoulder, making it a great purse for a shopping trip too!!! There's plenty of room for a small wallet as well. This is the one I made for myself.
Isn't it nice and springy?

I also made one for the caretaker of our condo building! Kathy saw the one above and fell in love with it! I was sneaky and asked her what her favorite colors were. She said purple and she always loves earthy tones. YEP...I found fabric for one! This is the inside. I added a pocket for the cell phone but if I do it again, I'd move it up higher on the back. I wanted to conceal the one seam into the base of the holder not realizing how deep it would be. Oh and learn!

Cute? I think so!

I hope she likes it!

Very creative, and the colors are wonderful, like spring/summer flowers! I am trying to catch-up with my blog has been a busy time, office and home! Hope all is well with you and your family! H/LY

Very cute! I love the "little" projects that are often featured in the quilting magazines. Although little projects take lots of time too (and different supplies!). I have been having fun making bags this spring too. I am sure that the recipient of that cute bag will really love it if she already loved yours - that is the very best kind of gift to make because you already know that the person likes it! Cheers!
