The Sew4Home Slim Messenger Bag is a PDF sewing pattern. This digital pattern is only available to print at home by instant download, immediately after completing checkout. As an ePattern, it includes instructions and photos to take you through each step of the construction. It does not include materials. Instructions are in English. We do not offer translation services at this time.
Tall and slim, this handsome messenger bag has a clean, modern style that works for guys or gals. It’s ready to go anywhere – casual and fun for everyday.
We chose a combination of navy, red, and white plaid flannel against a rich navy canvas. It’s a classic combination that works year ‘round.
Our custom design includes double push locks on the full flap closure. An inner foam core provides extra protection of the contents and great structure. Step-by-step instructions cover how to create two types of straps, insert push locks, add piping, and more professional details that will take your bag making skills to the next level.
The bag finishes at 10” wide x 12” high x 3” deep.
Originally released as part of the Sew4Home Maker’s Club; it’s now available exclusively in the S4H Etsy Shop.
