Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Just your basic straight stitching

Pattern Description:

The Varsity Messenger sewing pattern is for a cross body bag with a patchwork front. The bag has 2 pockets on the inside and a flap closure. There is no zipper or velcro which makes this an easier sewing project. It's just the right size to hold a full sized iPad. Your PDF includes 7 pages of instructions which are fully illustrated with color photos and 4 pattern sheets.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bag is 10.5"x10.5"
  • Strap is 26" from shoulder to bag


  • 1 fat quarter fabric for back & flap top
  • 1/2 yd. fabric for flap liner, strap & 1 front strip
  • 1/2 yd. fabric for liner & 2 front strips
  • 1 fat quarter for pocket & 2 front strips
  • 1/2 yd. fusible fleece
  • 1/2 yd. heavy weight fusible interfacing - you'll probably have a lot of this leftover
