I've been on a pattern hunt for months now. I'm trying to find a pattern to sew a messenger bag for my knitting. I'm looking for something similar to Jordana Paige's bags.

Anyone have any ideas?

So far I've found:

and
Amy Butlers pattern....

I really would like to just find a good pattern instead of trying to engineer my own.

Thanks

This (http://www.interweave.com/knit/books/files/FolkBagsExcerpt.pdf)one has been on my to do list for a while... it has a smaller flap, but you could easily make it longer.

Oh wow, I love the spork!!!! I've seen the monk satchel from Interweave, and it just didn't float my boat. I think I'd make it, and then just use it for a week.

I'm looking for something big, I tend to work on big projects. I think the spork is going to work for me, thanks!!!

You're welcome! It is definitely on my to-do list as well, I would love to see pictures of yours when you get around to it!
