Super Messenger Bag Tutorial

June 6, 2013 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Papa's got a brand new bag! Aleah from the blog NoTimeToSew made this nifty messenger bag tutorial with a three panel front and an interior zipper pocket.  We love the Japanese cotton linen blend that she used, but think it would be equally fabulous in wool; a little bird told us that our favorite dandy, Monsieur Du Jour, longs for this sewn in classic heathered grey wool flannel.
