Sara just released this pattern and it's a freebie!! Head over to Sew mama sew to download your free copy of the Kennedy bag.
This bag was a pretty quick sew considering all the extras and hardware it features. I love the accent piece and straps on the flap as well as the side buckles! It does require a few button holes and a zipper, but beyond that it's a project a confident beginner could easily tackle.
I think I will be enlarging this pattern and using it to make a messenger bag. I love the design of this bag! I just listed this one in the shop today.
