Messenger Bag turned Scripture Bag

My Husband had a Messenger Bag like this that he wasn’t using anymore and asked me if I could make it into a cool Scripture Bag that he could take to church.

So he drew up some ideas of what he wanted in the bag and I figured out the best way to accomplish it with the least amount of cutting, unpicking, and stitching. Here it is:

Basically I cut down the middle of the original bag and then re-attached one of the side pockets to enclose the bag again. I then shortened and re-attached the front flap. Used some scraps from the strap and front cover to make a handle to attach to the top. Then attached buckles!!!

Voilà a messenger bag turned scripture bag!!!
