So I've decided I'm making my brother a messenger bag for Christmas. (found this <a href="http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html" target="_blank">great tute</a> if anyone needs one)<br><br>
I want to do something on the front flap to make it a bit more special than a plain bag, but I'm stuck as to what.<br><br>
My brother is in 1st year of getting his PhD in PhysEd and TAs several classes so it needs to be somewhat professional. He's not a skull or camo kind of guy. He's really into sports, the ones you play yourself more than the ones you watch. He's a volleyball coach, plays on an ultimate frisbee team.<br><br>
Any ideas anyone?

Well, you could size the bag to fit discs, although he probably already has a disc bag.<br>
I made a messenger bag for my nephew a couple of years ago and I appliqued a football with his favorite team logo. I have also done a funky turtle applique on a messenger bag.<br>
good luck!

How about something simple and graphic like a few wide diagonal stripes in his favorite colors or the colors of one of his teams? You could then choose one of those colors to line the inside as well.
