The design of these three spacious backpacks is versatile so depending on the choice of fabrics and materials, it can be made for children, women or men. There are three different top closure choices, drawstring, zipper or foldover zipper. Something for everyone!
Each of the backpacks have two large side slip pockets (ideal for a water bottle) and a spacious zipper pocket on the outside for making it easy to grab the essentials without having to rummage around inside, like your phone and keys.
All versions are fully lined and there is a possibility of another zipper pocket inside (part of the instructions), or as many pockets as you like!. The shoulder straps are adjustable to suit people of all sizes and for optimum comfort.
The instructions cover three versions of the design of the backpack:
- a drawstring,
- a top zip and
- a foldover backpack (secured by a zipper closure).
All three are based on almost matching pattern template, only the finishing steps are different, therefore the designer decided to offer all three in one package deal.
