Wanderlust Backpack free sewing pattern

A lot of the fabric companies have blogs attached to their shopping sites and the one at Hawthorne Threads has some really interesting projects featuring some of their favorite fabrics.  They get guest bloggers in regularly to create patterns and tutorials for them, and this one is one of the best!

This is the Wanderlust Rucksack, a free pattern and tutorial created by one of their own staff members.

We love the roll over top on this bag, that allows for more or less to be packed in depending on whether you are out for the day, staying overnight or even for the weekend.  It’s a large bag with a lot of features but none of the sewing looks too complicated so we think even those fairly new to sewing bags should get a great result with this pattern.

What you will need to make the Wanderlust Rucksack

NOTE – there used to be a download pdf for this tutorial but the link is since broken, however the download was only exactly the same as you can now see on screen. So follow along with the on-screen tutorial for how to cut your fabric and how to sew this great backpack pattern. You can also use this tool, to create your own PDF download from any online sewing tutorial. Handy 🙂
