Description

This digital listing is for a 19 page PDF leather pattern to make the messenger bag shown above. Also included in the price is a 2 hour 40 minute HD video where I show you how to make the item and give extra tips along the way.

The plans contain:

- the leather pattern ready to print and use (with help on printing)
- full instructions on how to make the bag
- details on what type and weight of leather to use and some alternatives
- what tools and hardware are needed
- details of where to adjust the pieces to increase (or decrease) the height, width or depth of the bag
- discussion about different closure mechanisms
- discussion about whether to use a leather or canvas strap
- discussion about whether to have a fixed or removable strap

    A very well thought out and executed set of instructions. The pattern is excellent, easy to follow with lots of guidance. There are recommendations on where to source materials and how to make adjustments to the pattern to make it work for the builder. I cannot recommend this strongly enough. Ian is probably the biggest single inspiration for me to take up and continue to work with leather.

    Excellent video and pattern. A complicated build producing a really high quality design bag. Lots of hints and tips to transfer across to other projects.
