Sewing pattern for this awesome fully featured sling style backpack. I learned so much sewing this bag and the pattern is a bargain!

Sewing pattern for one of my all-time favorite travel and everyday bags. Lots of pockets to keep you organized and room for all of your essentials. Wear it in front for extra security or on your back. It also hangs nicely as a regular shoulder bag.

Sometimes you want a bag that has it all, pockets, compartments, zippers, a nice wide comfortable adjustable strap, credit card pockets, piping, and one that looks stylish and well made too.  We think you’ll love this tutorial and pattern showing you how to make these adorable sling style backpacks.  Surprise yourself by learning some new skills and techniques and sew a bag you can be very proud of!
