Messenger bag tutorial featured on Sew Mama Sew today!

Last month, I spent some time working on a messenger bag tutorial and submitted it to the Sew Mama Sew Back-to-School feature. And it was posted over there today! I hope it inspires some other crafters to make some. I have plans to make a second one for my oldest daughter in some laminate fabric.
I also modified the dimensions to make a matching lunch bag. I lined it with some PUL so it's also waterproof.
This messenger bag has barely left my little girls side and it even came camping with us last week. I love it when my girls use (and sometimes abuse) things I've made for them, it keeps me wanting to make more!

I wandered over from Sew Mama Sew to say thank you and am glad now since you've added even more cuteness with the little lunch bag. What a cute idea. Thanks.

Hi Rebecca! I came over from SMS. Awesome tutorial! I am going to make one for my kids' teenage babysitter. Could you tell me the finished size, please?

Thank you so much!
