Because of its structured, rectangular shape and its large, flap closure, a messenger bag (called such because they were
originally designed for bicycle messengers to carry their deliveries in), is an ideal bag for carrying and easily accessing flat
items like papers, books, or a laptop computer. Consider carrying a messenger bag in lieu of a backpack, briefcase, or  
traditional tote bag.

And of course a messenger bag can also be used as a simple handbag for when you want something with a neater, more
structured style. (It's also a style of bag that men and boys tend to feel more comfortable carrying without feeling like
they're carrying a “purse.”) Lengthen the shoulder strap of your messenger bag and it can be worn across your body for
added security. Or, make your strap adjustable by adding a buckle to it.

And if you think you'll be carrying heavy items in your messenger bag, either sew your bag from a durable fabric like
canvas or denim, add a layer of fusible interfacing to a finer fabric to increase the fabric's durability, or add a lining to your
bag for added strength.

And one of the simpler messenger bag patterns can make a great first project for a beginner just learning how to sew
because it will likely consist of simple shapes and be quick to sew.
