We all need one of those great little backpacks/sling bags for day trips, biking, walking, vacations, and more, or we know someone who does.
For someone on the go, we have the perfect bag pattern which the designer names the Summit Pack Sling Bag Pattern.
The Summit Pack Sling Bag has the following features:
- Two zippered compartments for convenience.
- The front zipper has card slots and a pocket within.
- The central compartment has a padded gadget pocket and a zipper pocket.
- The back of the bag has an additional zippered pocket through which the bag is turned in the final step.
The designer says that her project is aimed at intermediate or higher sewers. The bag is designed in a unique piecing way, that means no binding and no saggy linings.
When you have finished making your Summit Pack Sling Bag it will measure approximately 16.25” tall by 11.25” wide by 3” deep (at the widest point).
