Happy New year!!!
Have sewn up two backpack in one go, but took me several nights to finish this.
Got this free pattern from So Sew Easy. Their pattern is available over at Craftsy.
This backpack pattern is free. However I’ve altered it to the way I like it.. For instance I’ve combine the bag base with the side panel and I’ve sewn the seam hidden for the one using cotton materials.
As for the PU material, I’ve used binding following the instructions. Still I find it better to hand stitch to close up the binding, to have a neater look.
I’ve also not include the swivel hooks on the strap as I find it not necessary.
