A unique satchel with the feel of a mail carrier’s bag. This taller and thinner style can be carried with the double looping handles or worn crossbody with a detachable shoulder strap. Don’t forget the cool fussy cutting!
A versatile carryall with room to spare. We took inspiration from the heavy duty feed sack fabric of the early 1900s to create a look that’s nostalgically trendy and eye-catching but in a hardworking modern canvas substate.
Got something to say? Make a messenger bag with a real message! We used iron-on letters to create our FACT-FICTION phrase. Button flap pockets and a cool closure are just the start of the hardworking, everyman/woman style.
We took the sophisticated styling of an adult carryall and scaled it down to kid-size. Feeling like kids have all the fun? Want your very own mini vintage satchel? Simply lengthen the strap and you’re good to go.
Our bold, full size messenger bag is a true show-stopper. We fussy cut a classic Pendleton® wool fabric for optimum dramatic effect. The dense softness of the wool creates a stable bag without any additional interfacing.
We used a cool metal closure for this pretty shoulder bag design. There’s a curving side gusset to add structure and a unique curved flap with accent piping. All done with standard weight cottons! So fun, we made two samples!
Make a classic messenger brief in a slightly smaller size: 15″ x 10″ x 2″. There’s an inset zipper top, a front zippered pocket, and standard pockets along the back and in the lining. Lots of excellent options for storage.
High-tech accents; like snaps, hooks, locks, and more provide functionality as closures as well as pro style. This slim shoulder bag uses 6 different fasteners, including a pair of mitten clips to tether a matching inner pouch.
The clean, modern style features double tuck locks as the flap’s closure. Our step-by-step tutorial shows you how easy it is to add this professional finish. The bag’s slim structure comes from a hidden layer of foam.
