I also have the pink tweed messenger bag, and I love it! However, I did find it a little large for an everyday tote for projects. The bag is VERY roomy, and I can fit multiple projects, patterns and "stuff." I got it for Mother's day a year ago, and I haven't had any problems with tearing, etc...

You probably need the messenger bag AND the knitters satchel! (me too!!)

I don't own either, but I've been lusting after the satchel for a couple of months now so I can post here right? :

I saw one in blue at my LYS the other day and it was surprisingly large. And beautiful. Upon quick inspection, it appeared to be well-made (of course, time will tell) and I like that it has the snap closure. The pockets are basic but sufficient. I've heard accounts that the bag tips over sometimes, but I would think it'd be fine if you stuffed it evenly and not front heavy.

I love the grape and even asked if my LYS can special order (they can), but I'm still waiting for the lightning to strike *sigh*

Jordana Paige satchels and messenger bags are on sale at a slight discount here... not that I keep searching the Internet for lower prices or anything...

ETA: Shipping and handling might get the prices back up to the level of the other places it's sold... ah well...

Karen, I have the purple Satchel and LOVE it...but I have the same complaints as SJ and ecuzz....it pops open a lot when it's stuffed and I can't fit a lot of books in there.

I also have the pink tweed Messenger that I was totally about when I got it, then lost interest in it It's a nice bag, I just change mine all the time

Andrea, I remember seeing your Messenger Bag and that's what originally got me all interested in Jordana Paige (and by the way, does everyone know that Jordana herself is all of 23 years old!?! And she started her business as a teenager!?! I had no idea until I googled her yesterday!). But I agree, I seem to have gotten over the Messenger Bag for some reason, I don't know why...

Anyway, I'm just going to let this whole concept percolate in my brain for a while like I did with the Messenger Bag - originally I was going to tell DH (who was asking for suggestions) to get it for my birthday last year, but by the time my birthday came around, I was over it. So I'll wait on the satchel, too, and see what time does. It's not like I have nothing else to carry knitting, or anything else, in...
