The Genevieve Messenger Bag

The Genevieve Pattern

A versatile and beautifully designed messenger bag. The Genevieve messenger bag has a unique curvy shape. This fun pattern comes with the instructions to make two versions. Sew the bag with piping or keep it simple and leave out the piping for a quick and easy bag-making project. A large flap is your blank canvas to customize. An adjustable shoulder strap. Genevieve closes with a magnetic snap. A large slip pocket is found under the flap along with a smaller slip pocket for your phone. Two more interior slip pockets, an interior zipper pocket, and a pen pocket keep your valuables secure. This bag measures 36cm (14”) X 28cm (11”) X 7.6cm (3”) once completed. A very well designed bag and sewing pattern by Chris W Designs. A free video tutorial is available below.
