Maple Street is home to most of the UofAโ€™s sorority houses, and this messenger bag was inspired by them. Large enough to be functional (felted, it’s wide enough for most laptops) but with unique and interesting details to add a little individuality and style, this piece has infinite creative possibility!

Note: I used 3 skeins each of two colors in the Brown Sheep - if you use a different yarn, you’ll need about 360 yards each of two colors of bulky-weight feltable fiber.

This is pattern #3 in the Local Flavor collection. The designs in this collection were inspired by the town I live in and love. Photos are shot around town, and supplies, props, and additional garments are also local (to the best of my ability).
