Make a chic and stylish messenger bag with the push the envelope free sewing pattern. Messenger bags are are great alternatives to purses. Messenger bags, because of their practicality, have become more and more popular in comparison to purses and backpacks. This is due to the increased space in messenger bags and its ability to be slung over the shoulder and worn out unlike purses which are either big or have over the shoulder capabilities. In addition, this is an advanced bag pattern, so it is more difficult to create; however, the skill improvement that will come from completing a difficult pattern are immeasurable.

absolutely love this, and I accept your dare!! x

This pattern is a little more involved but it really has that special upscale designer look. And by creating it yourself you can adjust the size and number of pockets and compartments to meet your specific needs. There are so many beautiful fabric choices that you could opt for a solid color as shown, or for a special occasion you could take a tapestry fabric or even a metallic! The options are endless....wonderful project!
