Here’s another free bag pattern and tutorial from this most generous and talented pattern designer.
The Flaphappy Backpack is sized to be perfect as a handbag alternative or as a child’s backpack and has the following features:
- It has pleated sides
- It’s fully lined inside
- It’s padded and has adjustable straps to fit just right
- It’s nice and wide at the bottom, but the top easily stays closed.
The name comes from the fold-over flap at the top, which makes it easy to open & close and has its own built-in pocket.
