I've been meaning to post images since I made this really cute satchel bag (or messenger bag).



It was really simple to make after I found the tutorial on mmmcrafts blog which you can check out here http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html.  I have already thanked her for posting the tute.  It was so easy to follow and it really is a great bag to make.

It took me about 3 hours to make including fabric cutting.  It is complete with two internal small pockets as well as a large external one on the outside back.









Hope this inspires you to make one yourself!

Thanks for looking Smiley

Thanks Nadia.  Glad you like it!  I went for the polka dots inside because I wanted it to be a little surprise every time I opened the bag.  It's a little more serious on the outside with the pinstripe, then you open it up to a circus!
