Messenger Bag

I made this funky messenger bag last year, but I don't think I've shared it on the blog.  Love the contrast between the denim and the fun fabric from Dashwood Studios.  

It has a couple of pockets on the inside that are big enough to hold a phone and a kindle.  The main part of the bag is lovely and roomy, big enough for a laptop or lots of books.

It's fully lined and given extra padding with fusible fleece.  It has a slider on the handle so you can adjust the length really easily.  My daughter is desperate for me to make her one of these!  Now what fabric to choose!

[I initially made this as a class demo bag for a class I taught last year.  Having run the class twice I decided that, even though it was popular, it took too long to make in a class environment and therefore didn't provide a good value for money for the class.  So instead I have decided to sell the instructions here on my website so you can make it at home! Yay!]
