I like to challenge myself from time to time and since I’ve never made a bag I figured it was time. I made this backpack based on tutorail I found on Bag’n-telle as a gift for my friend.
Since it was my first bag ever dirrections on Bag’n-telle, which are very detailed, came in quit handy. I did some changes to the original idea, like added a wide binding to the top of the bag and sewed the straps.
