I loved making this bag. I made it for my grand daughter to take and leave in nursery to keep her spare clothes in. Every one that’s seen it loves it.
Pack Your Bag Backpack Sewing Pattern
This is the first time I've made any bag other than a simple drawstring bag.
Being able to print the pattern A4 and stick together was really helpful. The instructions were perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. The hardest part was sourcing all the hardware.
I will definitely purchase more patterns from you.
Thanks so much
I made this bag in a size small - it is so dang cute! I wanted to use up some samples of upholstery fabric I got in a mystery box and this pattern was perfect for it. I can’t wait to make bigger ones as my new work bag.
A wonderful pattern. Easy to follow and easy to adapt if you wish. I usually dread putting pdf file pages together but this one fitted together perfectly. Plus the three sizes are spot on.
I have tried two of the sizes. Large and small. They were both fun and not too complicated to make. But when I have used the large one it snaps back up and the sides pops in a way that the flap doesent cover it. Trying to find out how so solve it. Also. The magnet buttons i chose where not that strong. Maybe bc I chose sew-on buttons. 🤔
This pattern is so easy to follow, and makes a fabulous bag! It’s great for beginners, and a fun sew.
Beautiful pattern really easy and youtube videos to be found if you need extra guidance absolutely fab.
Love the three different sizes. Easy to follow directions. I have already made six and plan on making more.
Absolutely love it. I used a synthetic leather and made a purse out of it. And Absolutely love it.
