The Varsity Messenger

Here is the newest installment in the Messenger Bag series. The Varsity Messenger sewing pattern is for a cross body bag with a patchwork front. The bag has 2 pockets on the inside and a flap closure. There is no zipper or velcro which makes this an easier sewing project. It’s just the right size to hold a full sized iPad.
