DIY Canvas Messenger Bags
I purchased these bags as a take home gift for children, and they loved them. The material was a bit thin, but still served its purpose. I would recommend them to a friend.

One of the worst purchases ever
The material is a thin muslin usually used to make dress and pattern prototypes versus a finished product. Flimsy stitching. Can easily be pulled apart if any books were to be placed inside. There's no way that a kid, or anyone else for that matter, could actually use these bags.
The threads from the stitching haven't been snipped, cut, or hidden in anyway. Each bag looks like a tattered mess.
While they may make good patterns or linings, these "messenger' bags are more like shoddily made flapped tote bags.

do not bother
cheap, fall apart, material way too thin.

I ordered two packages of the messenger bags for a workshop that I will be conducting. The quality of the fabric is thin & cheap. Lots of threads hanging off it. Each one needs to be ironed. Order the plain white backpacks instead. They are much better in quality.
