Amber is a must-have pattern. With one pattern you get three different looks.

You decide which flap you would like on your Amber Messenger bag. All three flap patterns and instructions are also included.

You can choose the faux leather woven flap, the flap with piping or you can showcase your favorite fabric or embroidery design on the curved flap. The possibilities are endless.

And best of all the lining is fitted and has a gathered/pleated pocket and a zipper pocket.

Believe it or not, this is a fairly quick and easy sew!

Recommended fabrics:
This bag can be made out of faux leather, cork, cotton or decorator fabrics. The woven flap has to be made from faux leather or cork but the rest of the bag can be made from fabric.
