This bag is a total throwback to my high school days 😀 I can totally see myself using a bag like this when I was in high school, where I absolutely loved plaid (still do, I just try to be more subtle about it) and anything remotely resembling something punk.
The fabric is actually a leftover from some plaid pants I made back in the day, and the rest of the fabrics and the zipper seemed to match so well I couldn’t help but put them all together even if they do look a little loud. The structure of the bag itself is pretty reliable, as it mimics the purse I use regularly today. So you could totally switch out the fabrics with something more subtle and it still makes a great bag.
This is a square shaped messenger style bag with a long shoulder strap, small handle, front pocket, turn lock closure, and flap pocket with an exposed slanted zipper. Because of all the details it takes a while to get it all together, but I use a purse shaped much like this everyday and love it to death 😀 I hope you will too.

Whats your rules about selling are we able to make and sell items from free and paid patterns?
You are definitely welcome to sell items you’ve sewn using my patterns 😊 All I ask in return is a credit back to my site so others know where you got the pattern. Thanks so much for asking first!
