With this excellent pattern and tutorial, you will learn how to sew Everyday Backpacks for the whole family. This slightly sporty backpack is very versatile and will be perfect for girls, boys, men and women.
As a great bonus, the Everyday Backpack comes in two sizes medium and large. The backpack is neatly finished and fully lined. It’s functional but not too big and perfect for everyday situations.
The designer describes her project as having a pattern difficulty level of four stars out of five stars.
The backpacks have the following features:
Two zippered compartments
One zippered pocket on the back
An inside pocket panel
Adjustable and padded shoulder straps
A comfortable handle.
When you have finished making these Everyday Backpacks they will measure approximately:
Medium backpack – 38cm (15″) high by 29cm (10½”) wide by about 11.5cm (4½”) deep.
Large backpack – 45cm (17¾”) high by 29cm (11 3/8″) wide by about 12cm (4¾”) deep.
This looks to be the perfect bag project for those who are looking to expand their skills and try something a bit more complicated. It’s a more involved project for sure and will take you longer to sew, but if you’ve been sewing bags for a while there shouldn’t be anything here you can’t tackle with a bit of patience and time.
