Happy Friday all! It’s a really, really exciting day for me because after tons of hard work….I am so excited to announce the release of my latest sewing pattern! I am so in love with the result.
I’ve had a lot of help making this a great pattern including a crew of incredible bag testers and the incredible techie work of Daniela at Modern Stitch Studio.
One of the things I love so much about this messenger bag pattern is how versatile and functional it is. You might remember that I tried out a lot of bags before designing this one and teaching it as a class. This bag include an internal gusset pocket, has a slim profile that still perfectly fits a laptop, notebook and book and the strap is custom-sized to fit you! It makes it easy to make a bag for all ages and sizes!
Look at the amazing variety and incredible beauty in these bags from my testers:
What an inspiring bunch of bags! It’s really incredible to see my pattern come to life in so many beautiful ways. Jennifer from Sewplicity even pulled together a tutorial on how to add an adjustable strap, be sure to check it out.
They had the nicest things to say about the bag, too.
“I finished my bag and… I LOVE IT!! I’ve never made a bag with interfacing before and I don’t know if I can ever go back!”
” It turned out better than I ever could have expected. My girls are all begging for one – “Messenger bags are WAY cooler than backpacks, Mom.”
“The size is perfect for a medium size messenger bag. And because of all the interfacing, it’s pretty sturdy.”
I keep thinking of great new ways to work with this pattern to make amazing bags and I can’t wait to share them with you. For now, hop on over and get yourself a pattern! Embrace your inner bike messenger!
