Whizzy messenger bag!

I like the challenge set here - 32 minutes to whizz up a messenger bag. You'll find the challenge here: tutorial here.

With two birthday presents to make, I accepted the challenge and made them both within an hour! 

  • With extra time, I'd interface the outside fabric and put wadding on the straps. 
  • Remember, if your fabric has a one-way pattern, then you will need to make the outer piece 3 cm longer, fold in half and cut in the middle, turn one piece 180 degrees and stitch along the bottom seam so fabric is right way up on both sides of the bag.
  • I've included a hook to keep keys safe.
Happy stitching....
