Coming Soon…

..another pattern from Girls in the Garden Pattern Company!
I designed this bag during the late summer and early fall, it is called

  Daisy – A Messenger Bag

Notice the garden theme?

Daisy is a cross-body horizontal style bag with a large outside pocket and decorative front flap

A friend helps me out and puts the pattern in clear, concise form with great graphics.  She does with in her spare time, around being a college softball coach, teaching at the college and running her own painted furniture business.  I really appreciate her helping me.
She sent me the pattern on Friday and I made “Daisy” following the instructions and diagrams.  I think it is good to go, so in a few days, I will be listing this pattern in my etsy shop.
Take a look at the front, the flap has a pocket which is not only decorative but functional, too.

The back has several pockets:

The taller pocket runs the length of the back of the purse. The shorter pocket is divided in half.  So three pockets in the back of the purse for storage.
Daisy is large enough to fit a notebooks and books or the perfect size to carry as your purse.  A very functional book bag.
I will let you know when the pattern is for sale on my etsy site joining the first pattern – Rose (also a messenger style bag, with a vertical look)

  1. Ohhhhhh....I think Daisy should be my friends. My favorite friends have pockets. :) Lovely and thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, I am with you, lots of pockets are a good thing!

  2. These are lovely! I wonder if the messenger bag could be used as a diaper bag?

    1. Thanks, Karin. I think it could be a diaper bag and you could always add a few more pockets on the inside.

  3. super cute! i love pockets!

  4. Cute bag, Lori! and I agree, the more pockets, the better:-)

  5. That is a wonderful book bag! You are so clever... I find bags very difficult!
