Well I did ditch work, and let my sewing bug go wild.... I made myself a new bag today from scratch, no pattern, just saw a couple of pics online and went for it, basically it's a heap of different sized rectangles. The best thing is I used up leftover fabrics from other projects I have done.
It's a messenger style with built in pockets inside. I cut the straps off an old bag and used the buckles from that.
