Item details

SEWING PATTERN ONLY. Finished products and materials are not included.

The Midtown Messenger is a versatile bag you’ll want to carry everyday. It’s got a classic messenger bag style with lots of extra details. The outer bag has front and back slip pockets and a flap that secures with 2 tuck catch closures. Under the flap is a recessed zipper for extra security and a padded tablet pocket inside. Make the Midtown Messenger with durable waxed canvas for a rugged look or repurpose a pair of jeans and a vintage table cloth for a one-of-a-kind bag.

My printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Midtown Messenger Bag (13 1/2” W x 10” H x 2 1/2” D). PDF pattern includes a special coloring page for you to play and experiment with fabric choices.

Skill Level: Eager Intermediate. If you’ve sewn from a sewing pattern before, completed several projects and are eager to try new techniques, you should be able to handle this project!

Average review
The bag turned out great in the end. I am intermediate/advanced in sewing and this was hard for me to figure out. Otherwise everything was great.

Le modèle du sac est superbe. Les explications sont complexes et j'aurai préférer des photos qui montrent les étapes au lieu de dessin.
