I bought some Boy Scout patches and a button on Ebay (roughly $5 for all of 'em) and decided to make something uber cool with them. A scouting messenger bag! Oh yeah, kiddies, this is a scouting purse! But no fears, you don't have to fill it with things like 3-in-1 campfire cooking tools or rule books on morality, lip gloss and steamy love notes will fill it just as well. Wink

The bag has 2 pockets on the front (cell phone perfect) and 1 on the back. Inside there are 2 pockets. I love it for it's simplicity and all of the pockets which will undoubtedly help you "Be Prepared." As always, I love, LURVE, your comments! I just won some auctions for Girl Scout patches, so any ideas on how to improve it for the next one are greatly appreciated!

I don't need a baby growing inside me for nine months. For one thing, there's morning sickness. If I'm going to feel nauseous and achy when I wake up, I want to achieve that state the old fashioned way: getting good and drunk the night before.

I'm always on the look out for little scout shirts at second hand stores, I don't know why, but I'm drawn into them. So I'm definitely loving what you've done for this bag.  Great job.

dude, that's sweet.  My brother's an eagle scout and he's snuck me onto so many boy scout treks.  A little taboo but all in good fun.  The bag really is cute, thanks for sharing

That is a great bag!  I love it!  Did you use the "Jordy" type pattern for it?  It would still look really cool with out the badges on it, although I do love them too.

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate them. Something about patches are very fun. I just wish the ones I end up with still had the iron-on backing. I have learned now that I absolutely hate sewing them on by hand. Lol.

Ditto that. Unfortunately all of the thrift stores near me are Value Villages. They are so overpriced and they rarely have anything related to scouting. Sad

I did not use the Jordy pattern. I learned a way of making square/flat bottom bags from my mother a long time ago that I still use to this day. I was thinking about making a tutorial for it soon, as it is super easy, but I just haven't gotten around to it.
