The Classic Messenger is great for a smaller school bag, for toting sketchbooks to the coffee shop, or as an everyday cross body bag. It's a quick sew, and the flap is the perfect place to add your own touch with an appliqued element (instructions for applique not included). Each step is thoroughly explained and I've included computer drawn illustrations of the steps. The pattern includes instructions for interior pockets and for the hardware closure at the flap. Of course, if you do purchase this pattern, I will be available to answer any questions you encounter along the way.
