To make these Messenger Bags, I used a tutorial provided by sew4home. The tutorial is called Slim Mustang Messenger Bag with Tuck Locks. I have omitted the tuck locks. I cut into three old jean pants to be able to use their thick fabrics: pale beige (almost white, perfect with a pale outfit), dark beige (almost brown, perfect for fall) and black (absolutely essential all year round). The inside is made from old cotton pants.
