The McFly is the perfect backpack for a market, school, beach, or work. The pattern comes in two sizes: (regular) McFly and Mini McFly.
The (regular) McFly is big enough to hold a small laptop, A4/letter-size files, books, and more. It has wide padded shoulder straps, to make it comfortable for whoever is wearing it. The Mini McFly is a perfect size, as it is not too big to carry around as a casual daily bag while it is just big enough to carry all your essentials!
Both McFly and Mini McFly are zippered top backpacks with adjustable straps, handle, and oval base. The front is shaped using large darts and features a zipper pocket so you can access your belongings quickly whenever you want. The exterior side pockets are perfect to keep a small bottle of drink or an umbrella. The roomy interior also features a zipper and slip pockets so you can stay organized.
The McFly Backpacks are the perfect backpack for adults, teenagers, and children!
When you have finished making your very own McFly Backpacks they will measure approximately:
McFly backpack = 12¼” (31 cm) wide by 14″ (36 cm) high by 6″ (15 cm) deep.
Mini McFly backpack = 10″ (25 cm) wide by 12¼” (31 cm) high by 5″ (13 cm) deep.

What you will need to make a regular-sized McFly Backpack:
Note – you may need an additional amount of fabric with a directional print.
Note – zippers must be measured between the zipper pull and the zipper stop. When using a continuous zipper cut it 2.5 cm – 5 cm (1″ – 2″) longer.
