I know you’ll love this tutorial for a messenger bag from Vanessa of Punkin Patterns! The grommet and stitching details really make this bag look professional and I think this bag would work for boys of ALL ages!
Hi there I’m Vanessa of Punkin Patterns! I’m so pleased to be a part of Celebrate the BOY month. Being a mother to both a son and a daughter, I know how easy it is to sew for girls and how it seems that boys are left behind. I love sewing and making things for my son. He’s still at the age where he’s excited about things I make him and about how it’s made. He’s always eager to test it out or to wear it as soon as it’s done. For quite some time I’ve had an idea for this bag in my head. I went through many variations and options before I finally came up with this:
My son is my inspiration for this bag so I’ve named it after him – Connor’s Messenger Bag. He loves camping and he needed a great little bag to take on hikes or walks with easy access to his notepad and pencil, compass, camera and binoculars.
Grommets, carabiner clips, and simple contrasting thread details give the bag a unique style. This messenger bag is fit for any rugged little boy. Connor’s messenger bag is perfect to stash all of your cars, pencils, paper, books, leaves and twigs and whatever else your little boy can think of.
