    Just Downloaded this awesome messenger bag pattern. The instructions are very well written too, with plenty of photo’s for reference. Can’t wait for my two lil’ aspiring quilters( Granddaughters Ashley & Haley , both 11 yrs old) come for a visit so we can try out this pattern. Thank you.

    The Messenger Bag is a great pattern to have in your stash. A great pattern to showcase a favorite fabric. It whips up quite quick and looks professional.

    This is my first bag-making attempt and won’t be my last. Every step accompanied by a photo making it very difficult to make a mistake! Thank you for this opportunity.

    I have made many of this pattern, large and small I changed out the handle to be adjustable so I could have a cross over. Added zippers ad such. This is the first pattern I have made and love, love, love it.

    What a great pattern. It was easy to read and even easier to make up. I think this would be a great beginner pattern that would start them off with confidence in the world of bag making… I added an inside and outside zipper pocket to mine. It is now a part of my stock bags for my stall… thank you for a wonderful pattern.

    Hi Lisa, I finally finished the Messenger Bag. I found your instructions easy to follow and it was quite quick to make up as well. I did add an extra pocket on the inside one for my Mobile and one for my car keys. Thanks again for another wonderful bag pattern.

    I have a really hard time reading patterns because I have brain damage and so I’ve had to become a visual learner but this patter was so well written with all the pictures that I was able to make it without one problem!!
    So if you think you can’t make it I’m living proof that you can!!

    Really nice pattern for someone who is just getting into sewing. Had to add another closure though since the top flap didn’t turn out long enough when the bag was full of books. Otherwise it worked great for my kid to make.
