Pack Your Bag Backpack Sewing Pattern
Have made the smaller bag and followed the online tutorial which was brilliant. Am really pleased with the outcome and will be using the pattern to make bags for family gifts.
Pack Your Bag Backpack Sewing Pattern
Went together ok. Took me about 4 hours, only because had a lot of interrumptions. My daughter loves it.
I made this in medium for my daughter, the 1st bag I've ever attempted. The instructions are so easy to follow, it only took a couple of hours and my daughter loves it. Very happy 😊
Excellent pattern, very easy to follow. Lovely results. My daughter was delighted with hers. Another winning pattern from E&M
Super easy to make, I did the first one with a magnet, it does not stay closed but it was very nice to have while at the park. The second one, I found a cute clasp to use and it came out adorable! Both were small.
I found this a straight forward pattern with amazing results.
I'm using the bag I've made as my daily work bag and have had a lot of compliments. As usual with Ellie and Mac patterns it was easy to follow and there is a wonderful you tube tutorial to accompany the written instructions. They only negative I've seen pop up is the magnetic fastener on the front flap doesn't always stay closed. Now this has never been an issue for me unless I over fill my bag. Some others have overcome this by swapping the closure to a twist lock.
