Reversible Owl Messenger Bag

It's purse week over at A Lemon Squeezy Home so I decided to make myself a bag for the contest. I have been thinking about this bag for weeks. Actually it was the bag I made for my mom that inspired me. The fabric was such a good weight . I loved the blue zigzag fabric and for some reason it was screaming messenger bag to me. I am not sure why, but I was obsessed with making it reversible. I finally made it all happen this weekend. I have to say that it turned out exactly how I envisioned it too. Don't you love it when that happens?

Here's my new favorite purse.

Reversible Owl Messenger Bag

I added a large pocket on the back to hold a book or my idea notebook.


Here's the inside.


Here is the other side.


I added pockets on the side since I am always toting around a water bottle.


Since I was feeling very organized with my new bag, I also made a matching composition notebook cover, a wallet clutch, and a zipper pouch.

This wallet clutch will come in handy when I don't want to carry the bigger bag. It is big enough to hold my cell phone and car keys. So I can just grab it out of the bag and go.


Here's a look inside the wallet clutch.


This pouch will hold all the other random things that are normally floating around my purse.


I had planned on doing a tutorial, but decided not to at the last minute. I did write down all my measurements though so at least I can make another one without having to try and remember what I did.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot the fabric is by Premier Prints and it is home decor weight fabric.
****edited to add- I think I will do a tutorial after all. I am planning to make another one as a gift. Plus my husband mentioned wanting a larger manly version. So I will take photos next go around and put a tutorial together.

OH, Jen. I can't even tell you how loud I squealed when I saw this! I have that owl fabric sitting and waiting on my sewing table for something and it looks so perfect as a messenger bag. But then all the extras, too! Oh, I'm so incredibly inspired. I need to sew, NOW!

Fantastic job.

These bags are ador-a-ble! Its not nice to tease us with a tutorial-that-won't-be though!

Christina said...

Golly Jen, this is just darn cute! Love all the extras, and you are unbelievably clever to make it reversible!

Stacy said...

Great job on everything! IT is super cute! I love all the POCKETS. I know I need lots of pockets in the bags I make. That was something I forgot on my to do list...a new bag. :)

Chris said...

Love the fabrics you chose. What a fun design!

Great fabric and that bag is very cool. I have only sewn a few bags so far but nothing with zippers or pockets yet- still learning!!

Emily said...

I love EVERYTHING about this. The owls, the chevron, the design, the accessories...EVERYTHING!

Where did you get that awesome owl fabric?

Emily said...

Thanks for coming over to my blog to answer my fabric question. :)
