Hetalia Inspired Medium Messenger Bag: Make Pasta Not War
Italy doesn't actually say this in Hetalia, but he really should. Make pasta, not war!
The bag would be perfect for convention wear, and would go with any anime costume. It safely stores wallets, keys, even smuggle in a soda! The straps are fully adjustable, so you can wear it tight, up against your person for security, or as a longer, messenger-type backpack.
The messenger bag measures 9" in length by 12" in height (22.86cm x 30.48cm). The flap covers the front and is attached in the back by snaps. The bag has a main zipper closure pocket, with another smaller zipper pocket inside, along with a pouch for a cellphone, or keys. The front has a smaller, expandable zipper pocket, perfect for a paperback book, and flat zipper pocket right above that for extra security. There is also a zipper that runs along its entire side that you can unzip and get extra space. All total, with width can be up to 5-6", depending on how you stuff it (12.7-15.24cm). It's made of high-quality cotton canvas, with the flap of polyester. The straps are fully adjustable, so you can wear it tight, up against your person for security, or as a longer, messenger-type backpack.
The artwork is dye sublimated. This means that unlike silk screening, the ink becomes part of the fabric, so the artwork is permanent, and never fades, even with the most rigorous washing. The artwork is Italy's flag in green, white and red, and yellow lettering.
