So, I think I’ve got the proportions right on the messenger:

Front - much nicer proprtion to the flap

front pockets - nice size

Back - Love the new way I'm attaching the flap, handle needs to be 1" shorter, but I love that it's there...so nice to grab it and place it on the car seat when I get in/out of the car!

Cell pocket - works with my phone as well as bigger iPhone types.

Add the Mega Messenger:

Look - Cell pocket on one end, water bottle pocket on the other end!

Back - Love the new way I'm attaching the flap, handle needs to be 2-3" shorter, but I love that it's there...so nice to grab it and place it on the car seat when I get in/out of the car!

Water bottle pocket - make it 1/2-1" bigger

I’ve gotta make them one more time before they’re perfect. I was going for a softer texture, so I used Stacy’s woven interfacing, rather than the stiffer craft fuse I usually use. I don’t like how the sides don’t have enough structure, so I’m going to try to use craft fuse for the box that is the base of the bag, and the woven interfacing for the pockets etc.

I’m hoping to have 4 new bag styles by my next show, which is in October. The Grab n’Go, and then 3 sizes of messengers: mini, regular & mega. It’s amazing how even when I think, worry & fuss over the proportions and construction of a bag, it ALWAYS goes through several iterations before I’m happy with it…Anyway, here’s the 1st iteration of the messenger:

Flap too long

Flap too long

I like the new strap - dyed webbing, rather than canvas

I like the new strap - dyed webbing, rather than canvas

Needs new type of closure

Cell phone pocket a bit too tight, make the bag 1" deeper

I like this too

Needs new type of closure & I need to make myself a wallet!!!!

I like the back pocket!
