Have you been looking for a nice new bag for spring?  Maybe this Mini Messenger Bag will suit your needs:

This small messenger bag is an ideal place to carry your wallet, phone, a few books or a tablet, and other bits and pieces to get you through your day.  In the pattern you will find the following features:

  • Front patch pocket with darts
  • Internal patch pocket
  • Magnetic snap closures on both the flap and internal pocket
  • Adjustable strap

Suitable for quilting cotton, pincord (as pictured) or even home decor weight fabrics, this little bag is very versatile.

Finished size:  9″ wide x 9″ high x 3″ deep

My lovely pattern testers have been very busy over the last few weeks checking all my destructions and coming up with their own fabulous versions:

Becky, chose fabric with the perfect sunbursts for spring:

I love the dreamcatcher and arrow combo on Fiona’s version:


Helen looks to be planning quite the trip with hers – I wonder if she’ll take me too?:




Jeneta chose a fun print reminiscent of an old fashioned newspaper:


Katie made hers, covered in Disney villains, for a swap, hope her partner likes it!  I’m rather fond of the mini behind it too…


Linda used some fun Ikea fabric for the outside of hers, I think I might need to make a trip there when I’m back at work next week…


I love the bright, cheery colours that Louise chose for her bag:


Mary made a beautiful choice of Melody Miller big prints for her bag, I’m always so afraid to use mine, I think she’s inspired me to break it out more!


Monica looks like she has a good deal of reading ahead of her, hope it’s a good one!


Sue made a beautiful job of her version out of Cotton + Steel, I’m super impressed with arrows on the flap and the outer pocket lining up!



And finally, Tamara went with an improv patchwork exterior, it looks like her daughter loves it already:
