I love the look and functionality of messenger bags, but usually, I don’t have to lug around too many things all the time. I made this mini version using a very sturdy canvas fabric and antique brass hardware. This is the first bag pattern I’ve ever made from scratch. It felt like it took forever trying to get all the measurements right. Overall, I’m happy with the way it turned out. I’m thinking of making it in black. What do you think?
