|As a backpack.|
|As a messenger bag.|
If there is a version 2.0, I would reinforce the back of the bag with padding so its stiff and not so slouchy, and add the handle a little bit higher up so it can actually be used for carrying and not just decoratively.
On the whole I'm happy with it! It does the job, which is to replace the backpack I was using for work. I also used more scraps and bits from my stash. I wonder how long I can go without a trip to the fabric store? My goal this year is to use as much of my existing fabric as possible without buying any new fabric. That's going to be tough!
