  1. Brilliant! I want to turn the bag I got at the American Craft Council conference into a messenger bag too, but I don’t understand how the maker did it (especially the strap)… Could you please please please offer us some elaboration?
    Many thanks!

  2. Just beware – the bags they give away at those types of events tend to be hella cheap and of poor quality. Make sure you reinforce the stitches before refashioning them.

  3. Ah – thanks for the clarification. I got it! I’m going to make my tote from the American Craft Council conference into your nifty messenger bag! Great idea!
