This is my book bag. I needed a new bag for school and because I’ve been into making rather than buying I thought I’de try making a back pack.
I wasn’t sure untill it was done if it would work – but I’m really happy with it.
It has one big compartment, a pocket from my computer, a smaller pocket on the front and a pocket on each side. The back is padded and so are the straps.
Canvas, flannel, some foam, and hardware – $20-25 worth of stuff. (if you count the needles I broke maybe like $30-35.)
No real pattern – however I used a scaled ruler to make a scaled down drawing so I’d know how to cut the pieces.
