I do enjoy a good messenger bag!!  Here's a grey/white chevron print with hot pink trim. I added pink piping around the flap and the pink lining comes up adding a nice trim along the pockets. There are 2 slip pockets under the flap and the two slip pockets just like the others on the back.





The inside has a large zipper pocket and across from it are two more slip pockets.  The finished dimensions of this bag are 16" across the top, 14" across the bottom, 12" top to bottom, and 4" deep.  I love grey fabric prints with a nice pop of color!!

Absolutely gorgeous!  What did you use for interfacing?

I used fusible fleece (not thermolam) on the outside fabrics and medium or heavy weight fusible interfacing on the lining fabric.  Smiley  Hope this helps!  And Thank you so much for the sweet compliments!

I agree that pop of pink just makes your purse with the grey.  Lovely!

I don't even care for pink, but I love how it makes the bag pop.
