About the Day
My Very Useful Messenger Bag will run from 10am until 4pm and includes refreshments throughout the day including fresh coffee, teas and a light lunch.
In this project you will make a zippered pocket, an adjustable shoulder strap and sew on a magnetic bag closure. (Dimensions: height 10”, width 9”, depth 3”)
You will need to bring:
1/2m fabric (main fabric) for the outer bag. Stuart used a dark charcoal grey linen texture cotton
One 10” square of fabric (contrast fabric) for the outer front flap. Stuart used a print featuring zebras. If your design has an obvious motif you want to “centre” or fussy cut, you might need extra fabric to do so.
1/2m lining fabric. Stuart used lime jumbo polka dot cotton fabric
One package of Bosal In R Form single sided fusible
60” waist shaper or 2” x 60” of medium weight fusible interfacing
One 8” zip to match outer fabrics
2 rectangular rings with 1 ½” openings
1 rectangular strap slider with 1 ½” opening
1 x faux leather magnetic satchel buckle. Stuart loves the Prym version, alternatively you could do a button and loop in which case bring a large button or toggle.
Thread to match your fabrics
