I wanted to combine my children's messenger bags with a chalkboard surface and came up with the Children's Chalkboard Messenger Bag. It can be used laid out flat or to save space the flap can be flipped over to the back, on car rides for example. It closes with an invisible magnetic snap.
I made this bag with Grouchy Ladybug cotton fabric and red and black polka dot cotton for the lining and outside binding. The Grouchy Ladybug fabric features ladybugs and fireflies. This bag has an inside welted pocket and outside pockets for chalk and an eraser. The chalk pockets have a flap to cover the chalk. The eraser is included but the chalk is NOT included. To wipe the chalkboard surface completely clean, I suggest using both sides of the eraser. To completely clean the chalk residue, wipe with a damp cloth.
I use felt made from recycled plastic bottles for stability. The handle is padded with felt and adjustable with a plastic slider.
These can be made in any cotton fabric. Contact me if you have a special request.
