Tall Messenger Bag | Build Your Own Bag

Tall Messenger Bag | Build Your Own Bag

General colour of the jacket to be upcycled

The general weave of the jacket to be upcycled

The Tall Messenger bags is made for the person who is tempted to carry too much.

Being medium-sized and fairly flatish, it is great for housing a book, phone & wallet. Or your magazine, journal, sketch pad & pencils. Plus, her back pocket is a cozy & easily accessible place for your phone or keys.

The front is made from the lapel of the jacket and her back from a lower pocket. She is sturdy, because she's been double stitched where it matters.

Her inner skin has an inner pocket and the satin lining from a jacket.

The cover flap is the lapel, sleeve cuff or back of the jacket and held closed by a strong magnetic clasp.

She measures about 25 x29 x 6cm. OR 10 x 11.5 x 2.25". And her adjustable strap maxes out at about 134cm (52"). This makes her perfect as a messenger or a sling bag.

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