The Minus messenger grows.




I've finished my latest prototype for the Large Minus Messenger as I wanted to make a larger version of the original Minus messenger that is capable of holding much larger stuff, such as my A3 portfolio or laptop. This new version is able to hold A3 sized folios, folders, documents, and even 17" laptops. Again, the construction of the messenger is very important, as I interline the whole structure of the bag with a natural heavyweight canvas to add extra strength and support.

The messenger has the same features as the original Minus messenger such as a fully adjustable shoulder strap, trigger hook, two inside pockets for wallet, cellphone, iPhone, etc... but the messenger flap now fastens with two snap fasteners.

I hope to finish the new Large Minus Messenger in some lovely canvas later this week.

I will keep you all posted...

i was admiring the minus messenger just before, thinking: if only it were bigger...

and if you ever make one in charcoal, well, i might be compelled to snap it up.

Thanks for your replies.

Pouch: Thanks! I haven't joined the Etsy Uk flikr group yet. Once I know how things work I will take a look at it. But haven't had a chance as I am so busy...

Kirlianchoices: I'm currently making a sample at this time. It will be available in a choice of 2 colours, either dove grey or a black version. Keep watching for photos soon.
