An Everyday Denim Messenger Bag - Sew and Sell

An Everyday Denim Messenger Bag - Sew and Sell

This versatile messenger bag brings new life to old jeans, recycling them into a fashionable accessory. Alternatively, new denim fabric can be used to craft this sturdy piece. The structure of the bag is enhanced with fusible fleece, and it is lined with a soft cotton fabric for a polished finish. Designed with practicality in mind, this bag is perfect for carrying daily essentials such as a wallet, keys, and a mobile phone. Its compact design makes it an ideal grab-and-go option, while an array of pockets ensures there's a place for everything.

The bag boasts an ideal size for daily use, measuring 9 1/2 inches in both width and height, with a depth of 2 inches. It is a perfect square silhouette that does not compromise on space, ensuring you have enough room for your essentials without being bulky.

Storage options include a large, full-width zipped pocket on the front of the bag, measuring 9 1/2 inches wide by 7 inches tall, providing secure and accessible space for items that need to be reached quickly. Additionally, there is a small zip pocket on the closing flap, perfect for keeping items like cash or cards, sized at 7 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches deep. Inside, an internal slip pocket is ideally sized for a phone, at 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide, ensuring that your mobile stays snug and safe.
