I was at Pottery Barn a couple of weeks ago and saw this really cool messenger bag on sale. I don't normally go for these things, but the price was right, the fabric was a wonderful thick felt, and it had an irresistible seatbelt strap. How could I NOT pick it up? Anyhoo, I decided to embellish it with some colorful felt flowers and birds and I'm loving the effect. I think it really changes the look to go from serious to quite whimsical now.
