I am behind, as usual. I have been trying to finish a prototype for a smaller messenger bag for almost a year now. I can't believe it's actually taken me this long, but that's neither here nor there. Finally, I got my act together and drafted the pattern. I finished my prototype, and .... it is still too big. I'm trying to go for a smaller, more accessible price point, but this one will end up being just over $100...too much. However, I actually think this bag is a practical size: it's perfect as a book bag. So here's what I'm thinking: I will offer three sizes to pick from: The Kitchen Sink (my giant messenger), The Book Worm (a medium size), and the Tomboy, which will still hold a lot, but won't take up so much room on your body. Of course this means that I'm back to the drawing board to re-scale the pattern once again, but it shouldn't take me a year to do it this time! Here are the pictures of the medium sized bag: it's 12 inches (30.5 cm) wide, 9.5 inches (24 cm) tall and 4inches (10cm) deep. I used fabric designed by Amy butler for both the inside and the outer flap and back. This smaller size features two pockets on the back (not found on the bigger bag) and only two pockets on the inside instead of three.
