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.
The final measurements of the bag are:
Bag is 10.5″x10.5″
Strap is 26″ from shoulder to bag.
Materials needed: as shown
* 1 fat quarter fabric for back & flap top
* 1/2 yd. fabric for flap liner, strap & 1
*1/2 yd. fabric for liner & 2 front strips
* 1 fat quarter for pocket & 2 front strips
* 1/2 yd. fusible fleece
*1/2 yd. heavy weight fusible interfacing –
you’ll probably have a lot of this leftover
