This is my new purse. It was SO easy to make...no pattern needed. At this link thequiltingdiaries.blogspot.com/2009/04/32-minute-messenger-bag-tutorial.html is where you can find the directions...it's just 2 cuts of 1/2 yard of your favorite fabrics. I made this on my dinning room table one day after school last week while Ben and Madi sat with me doing their homework. They were actually impressed seeing this bag come together.
