Ruffled Messenger Bag


This is my newest purse — A Ruffled Messenger Bag.  I love how it turned out!  I will definitely make more from this pattern!  You can FIND IT HERE if you want to sew one yourself.  Or, contact me and I’ll be happy to make one for you!  This one is also for sale…….and if it doesn’t sell, it will become mine! Ha!  It is a gorgeous brown linen material paired up with a floral that is made by Moda — great quality fabric throughout!

It has a nice, long strap that is adjustable.  You can see the cute little loop and knotted strap on the photo below.  It can be adjusted a bit if you prefer it to be a little shorter or longer.  It adds a little something different to the purse, and I really like this accent.

This purse does not have pockets.  I will add one or two pockets the next time I sew this pattern, though.  I just forgot — and the original tutorial did not include them, either.  I hope you like it — and if you REALLY  like it, I’ll sell it to you for $30.  I will list it on my Etsy site in a day or two.  I have several items to add, I just didn’t have time to get it all done today.

  1. My daughter is looking for a purse that will fit her nook tablet. Do you think the messenger bag would work? Could you make one with a little pocket inside for her cell phone? She would love it. Thanks–Brandy

    • Sarah has a Nook tablet and I think this would be a nice size for it. I can make you Another one with a pocket if you want. No problem! Did you want these same materials, or something else? Let me know and I’ll work on it right away!

      • She would prefer a pink and green color scheme and a pocket inside if that’s not a problem. Let me know what you need from me. Thanks so much.
