Gather up your fabric scraps and put them to use!
This patwork messenger bag is both stylish and functional. It has 4 total patch pockets - 2 inside and 2 outside. The exterior back pockets are great for things you need easy access to - like your cell phone! The bag has a simple d-ring closure. The long shoulder strap allows for easy hands-free carrying. The front, back and flap are padded with lightweight batting.
