Make a messenger bag for your trips around town. (Also works great as a diaper bag.)
I think I have a thing for sewing new bags. I don’t carry a purse, always just a bag of some sort, so maybe that’s why. My bag functions as my diaper bag and my purse all in one.
I affectionately refer to my most recent bag as “the dungeon” because it is so large and full of so many random items. (Goggles anyone? How about an old french fry? Soccer sock?) I wanted to try to make a new bag that was less dungeon-like; maybe more compartments or maybe a slightly smaller bag.
Well, I succeeded in making a cute bag, but I am not sure that it is going to be any less dungeony. Oh well. I still love it.
Want to make it yourself? I know you do. Here’s my newest messenger bag pattern for you to sew!
Here’s what you need:
1 yard of your main fabric
1 yard of coordinating fabric
1 yard of lining (optional)
