Messenger bag pattern with zip closure

I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of messenger bags. Large enough to use as a school or college bag, they can carry books, a laptop, other gadgets etc… I especially love having one with a zip closure to keep everything secure. This project from Heart of Mary gives you a professional looking bag which will securely hold your belongings.


Clydebank Tote

Another big name in the bag making world is Sew Sweetness. As well as many paid for patterns she made this lovely handbag style bag pattern available for free on her blog. It also comes with a video showing you how to make it as well!
