The designer has included a full video tutorial on how to make the Biru Backpack on her YouTube channel. You can watch the video below:

What’s needed to make a Biru Small Backpack:-

  • Thicker fabric such as canvas fabric is recommended for the exterior & accent fabric. Denim, heavier linen,  and home fabric will also work for this project.
  • For the interior of the backpack you may use lighter weight fabric such as cotton quilting fabric. You may also try nylon ripstop fabric if you want the interior of your backpack to be water resistant.
  • Fusible Foam Stabilizer is used in this project to add structure to the back, bottom, and the padded pocket compartment of this backpack. Look for foam stabilizer that is designed specifically for bag making such as those made by bosal or flexi foam.
  • Fusible fleece is used for the straps for added comfort (optional).
  • Double Pull Nylon Coil Purse Zipper at least 20″ long #4.5.
  • Nylon coil purse zipper at least 8″ long #4.5.
  • Two adjustable strap sliders 1″,
  • Two rectangular rings 1″,
  • All purpose nylon coil zipper (at least 8″ long),
  • One set of button snap closure 12.5mm.
