Lotus and Firefly Waxed Canvas Small Messenger Bag - Satchel - Flap Canvas Bag - Cross Body - Screen Printed Fabric


Most of my items are currently made-to-order. Please review processing times in Shipping & Policies before ordering.

This pattern was inspired by Florence Nightingale, social reformer, statistician and founder of modern nursing. It’s part of my 2022 project, “Above and Beyond - A Celebration of Women in History through Print and Pattern”.

- Unique screen printed fabric
- One exterior pocket under the flap
- Two interior flat pockets (5” x 5” each)
- Adjustable 1” canvas strap from 30” to 55”
- Durable construction and built to last
- Antique Brass hardware

Front Panel Fabric: Cotton Canvas
Waxed Canvas Body: Chocolate Brown Waxed Canvas
Front Pocket Lining: Cotton Canvas
Inside Lining: Cotton Canvas

Exterior Dimensions:
Approx. 10 inches wide x 8.5 inches high
2-inch gusset

I created the bag design, designed the front panel fabric, screen printed the fabric panel and then sewed it all together in Portland, Oregon.

Because this item is handmade, the print/pattern may vary.

Care instructions: Spot clean only. Waxed canvas may feel slightly tacky at first, but the wax will wear into the fabric, which creates a rugged appearance; perfect for the rainy Pacific Northwest.
