I made this messenger style bag for my sister as a gift. I didn’t use a pattern, just looked at pictures and kept my fingers crossed! It turned out so well, I made another one for my friend Michelle as a diaper bag for her new baby girl, Sophie. I included alot of interior pockets ( I always do lots of pockets!) as well as a magnetic snap at the bottom of the flap to secure the bag. I finished with an adjustable strap, made from a coordinating fabric.
