Make your own magical Mermaid Tail Messenger with this easy-to-follow PDF sewing pattern.
This listing is for a downloadable PDF sewing pattern, not the finished item.
Our Mermaid Tail Messenger Bag is the first release in our "Mini Messenger Bag" line-up, and makes the perfect scrap busting sewing pattern! Featuring 17 pages of detailed instructions walking you through each step, a 1/2" seam allowance included, and full-size printer ready pattern pieces. My patterns are designed for easy and fast construction, making for an excellent craft show item, or quick birthday gift! As an added bonus, all patterns include a page of tips and tricks to make your sewing project run smoothly and successfully.
