TARP MESSENGER BAG

My clever crafty wife, who's been cranking out baby blankets like a crazy woman, decided she wanted to try her hand at making messenger bags, and knowing that I was keen on the idea of making one out of heavy-duty tarp material, she surprised me with this when I got home from work the other day:

And here's me wearing the bag:

Sewing sure is cool. So are messenger bags made of tarpaulin. And so is my wife.

Hi,

I work for an afterschool program for the city. I am very interested in how you made your messenger bag. We would like to buy our students their own backpacks but due to a cut back in funding we decided to recycle our old city vinyl banners to create messenger bags for the kids.

Would you be willing to give me step-by-step sewing directions?

Thanks you for your time,

Deanna

Hey Deanna -

In fact, the pattern was simply one my wife picked up from Jo-Ann fabrics. :)
