Item details

With this sewing pattern, you'll be able to make your very own Smart Messenger Bag! This is a DIY sewing pattern and NOT the actual bag.

This project is perfect for someone with intermediate to advanced sewing skills. You should be familiar with the basic sewing terms and techniques. The file comes with 15 pages of instructions, 34 pictures and 3 full size pattern pieces. All measurements are given in centimeters and inches.

Finished measurements (height x width x depth):
approx. 31 x 37 x 10 cm / 12.5 x 14.5 x 4 in

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!
