All posts may contain affiliate links.


A small backpack that works for adults or children. Plenty of options to keep you occupied, for a rounded or boxy bag, and different front pocket choices too. Full video tutorial takes you through the whole process.


This mini backpack is great for kids and adults alike. It has NO binding and NO drop-in lining! It is turned/birthed through the lining and sewn up through the zipper pocket to give a neat finish to the lining.

On the exterior it has a slip pocket and zipped pocket with flap for extra security. Inside is a small zipper pocket. Details are included to reduce and re-position the straps for adults and children.

It has two style options for the top of the bag, a boxy finish or a rounded finish. You can also choose a plain or cargo front pocket.

There are no raw edges in the pattern so you can use cotton, cork or vinyl, provided your machine can manage it.
