Melford Messenger Bag Pattern by Charlie's Aunt is a 1940's vintage inspired messenger bag based on the ARP wardens' bag.
There is a unique shaped front pocket and flap and this bag pattern is a practical size for everyday use.
The Melford Messenger can be made with a self-fabric strap, or a purchased strap attached with self-fabric tabs. The style makes up beautifully in two contrasting fabrics ranging from wool tweed, tartan and moleskin to contrasting patchwork fabrics with a retro feel. A template is included for a shaped interior patch pocket.
