This digital listing is for a 19 page PDF leather pattern for the messenger bag as shown in the photos.

The bag shown is ~ 9.75" (w) x 10.5" (h) x 3.5" (d) but is designed to be easily adjusted! You can also easily change the style of the bag by using different colours, strap styles, closure mechanisms, tooling etc.

The pattern contains:

- 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
- discussion about alternative gussets that you may like to try in the future

Accompanying this listing is a 2 hour 40 minute HD video where I show you how to make the bag in full and give extra tips along the way, this can be viewed here:


The video can be previewed without purchasing the pattern, the two go hand in hand and I feel that the pattern represents great value when you factor in the video which you are getting too :)

This is a digital listing only, both the pattern and the video are made available to you on-line you will not receive anything in the post from me!

Please note that from July 2015 buyers based in the EU will see VAT/sales tax automatically added to this item on top of the price which I have set (at the rate set by their own country). This is due to a recent EU ruling and affects all 'digital goods' such as these patterns. The tax is collected by Etsy and is entirely out of my hands and not something I have any control over; I do not receive any of this money.
