Pattern Description:

So, we were planning a family vacation to northern Michigan, including a day trip to Macinac Island where there are many quaint shops for buying trinkets and souvenirs, when I realized that the girls would be carrying their own shopping money with them. I don't know about you, but carrying pocket money for four girls and keeping track of what belongs to whom is not my favorite thing to do. So, I created this Mini Messenger for them. It's the perfect size for a little wallet and some lip gloss and maybe an iPod or whatever a tween girl needs. It slings over the shoulder so you don't have to worry about them setting it down somewhere. They were a hit.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Girl sized: 5.5"w x 7"t with strap 27" from shoulder to bag
  • Doll sized: 2.5"w x 3.5"t with strap 14" from shoulder to bag

Materials:

  • 1 fat quarter of outer fabric
  • 1 fat quarter of liner fabric
  • 1 fat quarter of flannel for interfacing
  • velcro - 1" length of 3/4" wide
  • 1 1"x43" piece of outer fabric for strap (less for the doll bag)
