This is the third messenger bag I've made and this one is by far the best (I haven't actually posted pictures of the others - just through laziness!)  This one was for a friend's sister and she picked out the fabric (from Grandmothers Garden in NZ) which I think is gorgeous.  I just happened to have the perfect matching pink for the lining in my stash.





The back...


Flap up...


The zip opening...


I'm so happy with the zip - I enclosed the zipper tape in fabric which I think looks so tidy, and the zip is just the perfect colour too.


Quilted flap...


Quilted front pocket...  I'm in love with magnetic clasps.


The inside... (there are pockets front and back)


I used HeartofMary's tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254975.msg2844571#msg2844571 Many, many thanks to you, HeartofMary!

It was tough giving this one away  Wink

Wow, beautiful in every way!  I get the impression that you quilted it yourself.

Thanks for the lovely comments  Smiley  Yep, I quilted all the pockets on this bag.  I hadn't done that on the two previous bags but I think they look better quilted - and they are stiffer, have a bit more body.
