Messenger / Field Bag Pattern Answered

Hello Crafters! I am looking for a good, versatile design for a messenger or field bag. I know there is a great, recent "-ible" for a leather field bag, but it doesn't seem like what I'm looking for. I want to make this bag out of canvas or denim, and then wax it to water-proof it (using another -ible found on this site!). I definitely do not want to make this out of leather, however, I'm open to including leather accents; possibly the front flap, or a hand-tooled leather patch on the flap.

Would someone post a good pattern for me? Thanks in advance!
