We have only recently found this fabulous designer and are keen to share with you lots of her fabulous patterns. All of the directions, instructions and step by step details are really clear and we think this bag could be tackled by even those who are new to sewing. It’s very beginner-friendly.
This is another fun tutorial and pattern which is completely free. This bag is called the Supernova Pleather Drawstring Duffel Backpack.
It’s a great looking backpack with a simple drawstring closure and it’s a great size for whatever you want to put in it whether it’s a school bag, sports bag, travel bag or whatever.
The designer has used pleather for the lower portion, bottom and straps which is a brilliant fabric to give the backpack extra durability. It helps the bag look really nice and means it will last much longer with the stronger than normal fabric. That’s optional of course – you pick whatever fabrics you like for this bag. A canvas or home decor weight fabric would be ideal.
We really like the two strong straps. This allows you to wear the bag over your shoulder or separate the straps and wear it as a full backpack.
