I made this awesome gold totally functional messenger bag for my pokemon trainer costume in June for AKON Dallas--inside zippered pocket, cell phone pouch, pen and pencil pouch, etc. I loved it so much that after the con, I used it all summer as a regular purse! I even took it with me to my nannying job.

Of course, the little 10 year old girl I was nannying LOVED it (and pokemon) and asked if I could make her one, but in pink. So one week I brought my sewing machine to her house and for an hour a day during "arts and crafts" time, we worked on making her a bag like mine. And here it is!

The pink pokemon bag! It's made from sturdy cotton twill, the white part is really soft flannel.

outside/inside pockets are the perfect size for my cell phone. Pencil holders are under the front flap. There's no closure, just the flap

Me and the original gold bag (with pokeball pins and pokedex pinned to strap)
