Adam designed this messenger bag specifically for men as he feels there’s a shortage of men’s bag sewing patterns to choose from. But let’s be honest, change up the fabrics and you’ll have a bag that most people would love to be seen carrying! This large messenger bag is great for carrying a tablet, small computer, wallet and other necessities. It’s a neutral bag that can be dressed up or down depending on the fabrics you use. We recommend this as an advanced sewing pattern due to the curved zip, but we walk you through every step in the photo instructions and also in the video tutorial. You should have bag making experience before giving this a go.

Fabric Recommendations:

We love to use waxed canvas for the exterior of this bag, but the stabilisers instructed do allow for you to use other fabrics too. Other great fabric choices include cork, cotton, vinyl or leather. Whatever fabrics you decide to use, make sure they’re suitable for your sewing machine. For domestic machines, it’s usually best to stick with cotton, especially for your first bag.

Finished size:

11″ tall x 13″ wide 2 1/2″ deep (28cm x 33cm x 6.5cm)

Bag features:

  • Slip pocket inside
  • Fun zip closure giving easy access to the main compartment
  • Exterior zip pocket
  • Handy grab handle
  • Adjustable crossbody strap

This is NOT a finished bag. This is a men’s bag digital sewing pattern to download and print at home to help you create your own bag. This digital file is for your personal use only and is not to be shared or reproduced. See full terms and conditions.

Immediately after purchase, you will receive the following files:

  • Letter paper file – the full pattern including pattern pieces for printing at home in the USA & Canada
  • A4 paper file – the full pattern including pattern pieces for printing at home outside the USA & Canada

This is rated as an advanced pattern. We recommend you have some bag making experience before making this bag as the front curved zip requires some sewing experience.

For printing at home, please use the letter paper file if you’re in the USA or Canada, or the A4 file for everywhere else. The A0 file is for projector and print shop use only and is not compatible with a standard home printer.

2 reviews for Kedemoth Messenger Bag – PDF Digital Sewing Pattern

  1. Jade Cowdrey Verified Owner

    This is the first pattern I have purchased from these guys, and I am so impressed. The attention to detail in the way the pattern is written is fantastic.
    And it feels personal, like they are there, encouraging you and cheering you on. This bag pattern (Kedemoth messenger) is an awesome bag! I was a little worried, but it came together so beautifully.

    I reduced it to 75 percent size, and it still came out perfectly!

  2. Ruth Allen

    The KEDEMOTH Messenger bag comes together so well. Follow the instructions. You’ll be thoroughly surprised with the skills you pick up when making a Country Cow bag. Every time!
    But this particular bag has not only a large capacity for its size, but it is easy to use due to the pocket placements. No flap to contend with. Being able to unzip from each side and the width of the opening makes this the perfect bag for a college student, for work, on the go, for travel…etc. It is comfortable and sturdy all rolled into one.
    Carry it on the side or as a crossbody since the strap is adjustable. Either way it’s ideal for men or woman depending on your choice of fabric. Just look at the pictures from the testers. I was able to fit a couple of packing cubes on mine, a book and accesories. All the essentials. Favorite design aspect, zipper placements. Easy access.
