I consider myself a beginner/advanced beginner when it comes to bags. I wanted a large bag, big enough for all my mom stuff, that I could carry across my body. I wanted one that had some stiffness and body unlike the other bags I've made.
After searching quite a while, I settled on the Mabel Messenger Bag from Jenna Lou Designs. I was sold after reading Sara's (Sew Sweetness) review. She gave quite a few great tips like...
*purchasing good quality hardware from Jenna Lou
*and adding 2 pockets on the inside instead of just one.
This is my first magnetic snap installation. Very simple - love this closure.
And here I am! I will be happy parading my new bag all over Ohio this winter, even though I should probably save it for spring. Nah, I can't wait that long...
