This messenger bag was supposed to look different. I never did find a pattern I liked. Turns out, someone else in the house actually likes it. I would like to put something in the bottom for a bit more stability. Fun Michael Miller cat print on the outside and the blue is a lovely teal-ish suedecloth. The colors are so fun! Embellished with ribbon along the front and several pockets inside, plastic snap closure- so no worries about popping a laptop into it someday. (although, so very unlikely in our home).
