Extra Large Messenger | Build Your Own Bag

General colour of the jacket to be upcycled

The general weave of the jacket to be upcycled

By far the largest, and built tough this large tote is perfect for your papers, mobile, wallet & your laptop. She is mighty large and can be used as a shopping, book or diaper bag. Or for your magazine, journal/drawing pad and pens/pencils. Plus, her back and front pockets are a cozy & easily accessible place for your MP3, mobile or keys.

Really sturdy because she's been double stitched and her outer shell comes completely from a woollen jacket. A batting is interfaced to provide a stiff cushioning to help ride out the knocks & bumps of everyday life.

Her inside is made from the original satin lining of the jacket with the two inner pockets  plus the maker's label.

The cover flap is made form the jacket's sleeve with a large loop & over-sized button to close her. The best part is the secret pocket on the underside of the sleeve. The Jacket's lower pockets are on both the front & the back, and a zippered closure to keeps everything safe inside.

She measures roughly 40 x 27 x 12cm. OR 15.75 x 10.75 x 4.75".. Her thick adjustable strap winds generously long with ample room for you to wear it messenger styled. The strap is reconfigured from the back section of the jacket.

Please note that the pictures are to give an idea of what the bag will look like and NOT the actual bag itself.
