Refashioned Messenger Bag

I forgot to post about my recent wardobe refashion, though I'm not sure that phrase applies to accessories, anyway....
I finally got round to changing one of the conference issue messenger bags I rescued from being thrown out at work. The ugly CIBSE logo and text is now hidden beind a giant , colourful pocket, which has a velcro fastening at the top. It was much easier than I thought to unpick the existing bias tape, and resew it over the new fabric. The existing hardware to fasten the bags flap down was easy to remove and re-install. The whole thing took less than an hour to change.
This was finished and started one Wednesday evening, after band practise. I have used it every day since!
