Warning, these bags are addictive to make! I have an eclectic taste for fabric and I love to sew projects that encourage the use of color and diverse prints in an interesting way. This bag is an awesome use for all of those bold, beautiful, and quirky, prints in your fabric stash. The easy-to-use downloadable PDF includes cutting measurements for this bag in three sizes: An adult messenger, a junior bag for school-aged kiddos, and an adorable mini version for your favorite little preschooler. The detailed photo tutorial should guide you easily through the project, even if you've never made a bag before! If you ever have any questions, I am always here to help. Just visit the RedLabel Facebook Page and message me anytime! I sincerely want you to have a BLAST creating a bag that is uniquely YOU!

Recommended with this pattern

  • 3 1/2 - 3 5/8 yards quilting weight cotton (depending on desired size)
  • A mini magnetic snap closure to secure the main outer body pocket is recommended (14-15mm, nothing heavy-duty); you will need a few small scraps of fusible interfacing to reinforce your fabric when you do the snap installation.
  • Optional embellishments include 10-13" of ribbon/trim for the front flap, 9-12" of piping/binding for the side pockets, and a button for the inside pocket.
