Long Messenger Bag - weaver pattern for leather


A soft leather messenger bag made in the exceptionally easy to do weaver style! This one is a little bit different from normal, as it has a soft body, (we used a firm soft leather, but you can also use tooling leather for the entire bag if you so choose), but the weaver straps are made from tooling leather. That helps the bag hold its shape and not sag. It's a nice sized bag, and can carry oh so many different things!

This messenger bag measures 9" wide X 12" tall and is 2" deep when completed. You can have as many as 4 patch pockets, 2 inside and 2 outside. AND the pattern includes an optional decoration for the flap, which is way too cool! PLUS.....there is no need for a closure unless you REALLY, REALLY want one! The weight of the flap keeps this bag closed.

And with the large flap, you have lots of area to express yourself! We used a stencil and markers on the rose-pink and black suede/firm soft leather bag and added a stone to the flap decoration on the dark brown bag. You can even leave the flap blank if you so desire!

The Long Messenger Bag pattern includes printing directions, material and tool lists, instructions, pictorial instructions for the weaver strap, bag patterns, and full color examples. All available for instant download in PDF format! That way, you can get started on it today!
