Another Messenger Bag

Here is another Messenger Bag for a Christmas present.  This is the fabric Lauren and I went to Mooresville to look for at the Quilter's Loft when it began to snow! I hope my niece will like it. I love the pattern as it is really quick and easy to out together. 

The pattern I used is Butterick B4147. I had to make the messenger bag a bit smaller
than it called for as Lauren didn't like the bigger size.
Here is another little purse/backpack I originally bought the pattern for.

While we were there, Lauren saw another purse pattern she liked.  They had a sample hanging up and if they had not had that I don't think either of us would have given a second thought to the picture of the pattern.
Although is says lunch tote, I think it will work for a purse tote!   This will be AFTER Christmas before I start anything new!

Merry Christmas Y'all!

That messenger bag is lovely and the fabric was definitely worth the drive! Can you say which pattern it is made to? I'd love to give it a try if it is easy to put together!
