I really like sewing new bags for my sister, nieces and daughters every Christmas, and I think they really like receiving them. (I heard that my oldest niece loves to tell her friends when they ask about her bags that they’re one of a kind!) Handmade bags for the girls have sort of become my annual tradition. This year, I’ve been sewing messenger bags for everyone and thought I’d share my pattern with you. I hope that you’ll enjoy creating with it for yourself and your loved ones.
The tutorial is for the laptop-size messenger bag, but there are suggestions at the end for how to alter the size to your own specifications.
You can find the pattern and instructions here: Messenger Bag.
I’d love to hear from you and see pictures if you make one, and I’m always happy to answer questions. Just leave me a comment, and I’ll do my best to get back with you as soon as I can!
Don’t miss my Art-On-The-Go Kit Tutorial which makes a great stocking stuffer and, of course, my Christmas Stocking Tutorial, too! I hope they help to get you on your way to your own Handmade Holiday traditions!
