Mini Messenger Bag Pattern & Tutorial


The Mini Messenger Bag is probably one of the most made projects in our sewing studio. It’s perfect for kid size, works great for both boys and girls and the kids just love it. It stays pretty simple with just the flap closure and the strap is made of webbing (with option for a fabric strap). The bag is made up of one pattern piece, so no lining up bag with flap. A guaranteed crowd pleaser!  Finished dimensions are approx. 8″ x 10″.
