Okie so I need a briefcase for my new job... Im thinking to expand on the messenger bag style but with no flap and a magnetic closure... what do you think are some features that I couldn't live without? I'm planning on having a division on the inside along with some pockets for pens and cell phones and such... anything that I shouldn't live without?

Sorry, I have no idea what goes in a briefcase.  Cheesy
I'd lay everything out that will go in it and make pockets and organization accordingly.

I worked on a Amy Butler's messenger bag and it had a lot of really helpful pockets and pouches. Definitely go with several pen holders, a place to put a planner, lots of zippered pouches of various sizes, place for a calculator/cell phone/ipod/etc.

If you like unique and custom handbags, check out my blog and my etsy.

I'm not sure if you are still looking for something, but I found a pattern here.

There is a pattern for a messenger bag that seems to have everything you'd need, minus the division.  It's available over at Instructables.com (called Awesome Messenger/Laptop Bag), but the guy who made it did all the sewing by hand; so, using a machine would make the project much quicker.

Thank you so much for the rockywoods.com site pfirsch!  My husband and I love to go camping, and I think it would be great to make some of the items that are useful for that!  That site is a wonderful resource to do just that, so thank you!! Grin Grin

Here are some patterns for business bags.  Might give you some ideas if you don't like to purchase patterns.
