How it works

  • This pattern was designed by a Craftsy independent design partner!
  • You'll purchase through PayPal and all profits go to the designer.
  • After purchase find your pattern in your pattern library.


The smart messenger bag carries not only your essentials like wallet and keys but also provides enough space for books, cosmetics and your electronics! This bag features: - an exterior pocket for your water bottle - a slip pocket inside the bag, padded with heavy stabilizer for your iPad - a zip pocket on the front of the bag for your keys, phone or wallet - adjustable strap: you may carry the bag on one shoulder or wear it cross-body. I used waterproof laminated cotton, but a midweight quilting fabric or home decor fabric will also be a good choice for this bag! The pdf file comes with 15 pages of instructions, 34 pictures and 3 full size pattern pieces. All measurements are given in centimeters and inches. Please note that this pattern may not be republished or distributed without permission. However you are welcome to sell items made with this pattern.

My name is Anna and I'm a designer and seamstress living in Rochester, NY. I've always been the creative type, I like trying out all kinds of handicrafts and artwork, but I have to admit that it's actually fabric I like to work with most. After graduating I soon realized that I had to find a job where I would be able to express my creativity and to make beautiful things! That's how I decided to create my own label! Moving to the US in 2011 was just the perfect opportunity so I seized it and that was the beginning of charmed Liebling.
