Cross-body bags remain a huge trend for this autumn/winter and this LIMITED EDITION Charlie's Aunt kit contains most of the key ingredients you need to make our classy Melford Messenger Bag. It has a piece of sea blue vintage English tweed measuring 27" long by 60" wide (68cm x 154) to make the main bag body, a piece of Handwoven Harris Tweed in plaid to make the front pocket, and a leather strap in chocolate brown with gold coloured D-rings to match, measuring 36" long by 3/4" wide (92cm by 2cm). The pack also contains three chocolate brown vintage buttons (approx 1.25" diameter), a label for your bag and a magnetic snap. You will also get a professionally PRINTED version of our Melford Messenger Bag pattern.

PLEASE NOTE: Buttons will still be vintage but will not be the same as those shown in the picture.

I only have a limited quanitity of this vintage wool tweed, and the Harris Tweed so snap up your chance to make a truly one-off piece in beautiful traditional fabric. The sewing pattern would cost $12 and the strap $14 so this pack offers a cost effective way to make your messenger bag in true Charlie's Aunt style.
