Messengers of Good Intention!

This handmade, one of a kind reversible messenger bag was created with the help of my 94 year old Grandmother.

While staying with her for awhile, she taught me so much about aging gracefully and what really matters in life, but she couldn't do anything about my procrastination skills. And as I was scheduled to leave her house the next day, I was frantically sewing the pieces of my bags together, assembly line style, with Gram the only one on the assembly line. Luckily, she's a great sport and found it comical. I found it to be an unforgettable Grandma/favorite granddaughter moment (I like to refer to myself as the favorite for everyone).

This is a custom pattern, designed by yours truly, that has already taken on a few time saving changes, which makes this bag even more of a "one of a kind". There are six bags altogether (7, if you count the one I use myself) made from this pattern and only ONE with these fabric choices. Remember, it's two bags for the price of one simply by turning it inside out!

Each bag is reversible, has multiple pen pockets, a cell phone pocket (big enough for iPhones and Droids). 3-5 other pockets, adjustable, reinforced strap with metal hardware, machine washable (just iron it out after washing), and is big enough to fit a 17.3" laptop WITH laptop sleeve. It can be used as a book bag, grocery bag, laptop bag, diaper bag, knitting/crochet bag and whatever else you can think of.

Now, down to the nitty gritty details:

Both fabrics are 100% cotton, reinforced with fusible fleece, and I pre-washed them before sewing, so there will be no shrinkage.

Bag: 16" x 12.5" x 3.5"
Front pocket on owl side: 4" x 6.5" and 6 pen pockets
Back pocket on owl side (split into two pockets): 4.25" x 6.5" both
Front pocket on brown bubble side (split into two): 4"x 7" and 4" x 7"
Back pocket on brown bubble side: 7" x 7" both
Adjustable Strap length: from 32" to 57.5"
Adjustable Strap width: 2"

There will never be another bag like this!

I also take custom orders.

And if you'd like a matching laptop sleeve, I can try and find the fabrics to match.
