I designed and made this little messenger bag for my boyfriend to use on an upcoming day trip to New York City! This may seem like a nice gesture, but now I don’t have to keep his stuff in my purse hehe >=) The Ultrasuede was a bit tricky to work with, but I finally put my perfectionism aside and accepted that not EVERY stitch had to be perfect. All in all, I’m happy with it. Too happy with it. He might never get his hands on this one…
Ultrasuede for the bag body/flap
Quilting cotton for the pockets
Polyester webbing for the strap
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
