Ashley from Mommy By Day… Crafter By Night shows how she made a messenger bag for her little sis who is heading off to college. This is such an awesome bag for school! She designed the bag so her sister could easily carry her books and laptop to classes. It has a large front pocket hidden under the flap, and a square of padding on the shoulder strap helps keep it from becoming uncomfortable from the weight of college books. Get the tutorial.
