This is part 6 in a series designed to walk you through designing and sewing a messenger bag. If you have missed steps, you should go back to this page.
You assemble the exterior of the messenger bag exactly as the lining. Make sure to repeat these instructions to assemble the lining as well.
Lay out one of the body pieces of the bag with both sides laid on top of it, right sides together. Pin and sew them together.
When the bottom is properly attached, it will overlap the side slightly. Make sure that you only sew the bottom to the body without sewing it to the side. This will allow it to attach together later.
Once you have done this for both the exterior and lining, the pieces that make up the body of your bag are now complete.
