Pattern Description:

This bag pattern is suitable for adults and children and comes in two sizes. I originally designed it for my eleven year old daughter to be a more feminine take on a traditional utilitarian messenger bag. It hopefully retains all the practicality of the classic bag, but with curved edges, contrast piping, a gathered pocket and optional Dresden petals, the overtly functional look is softened.

Both bag sizes feature an elasticated side pocket suitable for holding a phone or, on the larger sized bag, a drinks bottle or compact umbrella.

Inside, the larger bag size includes an internal zippered pocket...with a secret internal zippered pocket within that one! For children it's a delightful detail of the bag and for adults it's a practical place to store small things, such as a ring or watch if you take them off to go swimming. It also includes an open interior pocket and a key holder. The smaller sized bag has been parred down to include only the interior open pocket and key holder.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The larger bag measures approximately 12" high x 10 1/2" wide x 3.5" deep
  • The smaller bag measures approximately 91/2" high x 9" wide x 21/2" deep

Materials:

  • 1 yard of outer fabric, just under 2 yards lining fabrics, firm interfacing, piping foot, zipper foot

You Will Also Need:

  • 1/4" elastic, piping cord, magnetic bag snap, 2 x zips, fusible appliqu web
