DIY Idea: Messenger Bag for Beginners

A couple of months ago, my teen’s BFF came over and asked if I would teach her to sew a bag. She was able to make this in one afternoon, did all the sewing , measuring herself. I was quite impressed for someone who has never used a sewing machine before, she could sew pretty straight lines !

This pattern is like a tote bag’s pattern, except with the sides lengthened. The dimensions are 43cm L x 36 cm W , with a 3 cm bottom depth.
