Military Messenger Bag: A New Pattern

(This post contains affiliate links!)


I'm a little late in announcing it here, but if you've been following along on Facebook, you may have seen/heard that there is a new pattern out! 
And, what is even more exciting is that it is in One Thimble. 
That's right--right now it is exclusively available from One Thimble--either in Issue 15 or as a stand-alone pattern. 


This is the blurb I came up with about it: 

Inspired by my sons' love of anything military, I designed this bag as a book bag for pre-teens and teenagers. However, depending on your fabric choice, it works great for adults as well, as it includes a longer strap option for adults. Both strap options are adjustable.
The main features include the bellow pockets on the front, highlighted by the grommets. Also, the bag is reinforced by webbing that goes all the way around the sides and bottom to make sure that your creation will withstand the rigors of lugging books and other items. 
There are two options included. Option 1 is an asymmetrical flap with one pocket while Option 2 is a symmetrical flap with two pockets. Or, you can leave the pockets off and applique, embroider, or otherwise decorate the flap--the possibilities are endless!
This pattern includes printable pattern pieces and clear instructions with full color pictures. 
Finished size is approximately: 
Height: 12" Width: 10.75" and Depth 2"


Both my boys LOVE their bags! 
They take their Bibles and notebooks to Church in them, and they look pretty cool in the meantime. 


Fabrics used are a brown denim from Canadian National Fabric, and the rest are a camo twill type fabric and two quilting cottons from my stash. 
Hardware is from Emmaline Bags and the webbing from Cleaners Supply.
