Item details

*** This pattern is in ENGLISH only.

By purchasing this listing you are not purchasing a finished bag. This is a PDF sewing pattern to make the bag pictured.

This mini messenger bag is perfect if you prefer a medium sized cross body bag. The possibilities are endless if you combine different types of fabrics: you can make a flap with a single fabric and an accent piece (like ribbon!), you can make the flap with a piece of accent on the bottom such as faux leather or denim. I have also included the instructions to make a patchwork flap like in the photos.

If you choose to use faux leather accents when making this bag, it is best to use a walking foot or a Teflon foot for your machine. If you do not have a walking foot, you can always sew with a layer of tissue paper between the foot of your machine and the vinyl and then carefully tear off when your seams have been sewn. However, I highly recommend a walking foot/Teflon foot!!

For the interior of the bag, I give instructions for the slip pockets, an optional zippered pocket, installation of a magnetic snap and creating an adjustable strap. There is one exterior zippered pocket on the back.

This bag uses sew-in interfacing to give the bag structure (I use duck canvas).

Measurements for this bag are:
Width: 15 inches (38.1 cm)
Height: 9 inches (22.9 cm)
Depth: 4 inches (10 cm)
Strap is either adjustable in the length of your choice.

SEWING EXPERIENCE: This project should be suitable for beginners. It will take approximately 2 hours to make this bag depending on your sewing experience and which options you choose when making the bag.
