This mini backpack sewing pattern 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 reposition 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.
