If you visited the Sewing Republic website last week, you may have noticed that they’ve moved. You can now find fun tutorials plus more including inspirational articles and photos, tips & tricks, and expert advice all at We All Sew. While you’re there, be sure to check out my new project, the Billboard Messenger Bag! Not only is this messenger is roomy enough to carry your books AND laptop it’s waterproof, too – so if you’re darting across town (or campus) in the rain you don’t have to worry about everything getting soaked (plus the exterior is easy to care for, just wipe down with a damp cloth). Best of all, it’s green because it’s made out of recycled billboard material! Don’t worry if you’ve never had the opportunity to work with this type of ‘material’ before, I’ve included a few tips within the article on how to deal with it (trust me, it’s much easier than you think!).
**If you’re looking for a resource for your billboard material, I purchased mine though The Billboard Warehouse. You won’t be able to select what you receive, but no matter what you get there’s plenty of ‘material’ to choose from (mine was an ad for an internet cable company).
