Here’s your chance to use this awesome FREE pattern from this fantastic designer to make a great Messenger Bag in a slightly smaller size: 15″ wide by 10″ high with a 2″ base.
The Compact Messenger Bag has the following features:
There’s an inset zipper top which keeps the main center compartment secure
A front zippered pocket
Standard pockets along the back and in the lining gives lots of excellent options for storage
The shoulder strap adjusts to fit any height and can even be lengthened to wear the bag crossbody
There’s a magnetic snap added to the main front pocket, leaving the back pocket open for easier access — but you could certainly add another snap to the back.
This project is a little bit more advanced than many that this designer has produced, however, they have included a substantial number of in-progress photos along with their famous step-by-step directions. And there are also links to more in-depth tutorials on the featured techniques for inset zippers, adjustable straps, and magnetic snaps.
