Prototype Varsity Messenger Bag
Added Jan 14, 2014
I made this as an xmas gift, and am very proud of it :)
Construction went smoothly, I found some beautiful webbing in a local shop and got to bust quite a lot of stash materials and notions to make it!
It’s a prototype because the pattern and instructions aren’t good at helping you visualise the size, pockets or versatility. Now I know what the bag is like, there’s one in the works for me too.
A few more construction details on the blog if you want to take a look! http://ohsewcultured.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/gift-sewing-for-guys-hint-its-messenger.html
Brown stripe cotton ticking, craft cotton, sandwash silk, silk habutai
