This was my first go at a messenger bag I made for a friend as a going to college gift. I didn't take the time to take measurements because I was so excited to give it as a present but I do have some fairly decent pics of it. I had to make it big enough to fit her laptop with sleeve and books etc. in it. The strap is a belt she had and so are the little bits that connect the strap to the bag. Well on with the piccies!!

Inner lining is a bright pink gingham type fabric.

The Ipod pocket and pencils holders....this more like the actual color of the lining!

And me modeling the bag, I added a ribbon flower with a big pink bead for the center and the first thing her boyfriend gave her (a bud lite bottle cap) that I made into a button and a best friend piece of lanyard my daughter made me sew on.....

all comments welcome as I am very new to this!

Love all the pinkness of it! That looks like a roomy, functional bag. It is really fun and kicky besides.
What does it measure?

I know she'll love it !

That's so sweet Smiley I like how you've incoorporated stuff that's hers into the bag.
And it's excellently done, and not to mention pink  Cheesy
