Backpacks are super useful item to carry essentials while traveling or going for running errands. They carry almost anything you need.
What is more amazing is you be able to make your very own backpack in a print of your choice. A backpack needs to be practical and spacious and this is exactly what this backpack is back.
It has a zipper pocket at front that not only looks elegant but can carry your essentials in an organized manner. The main compartment also has a zip which keeps the items inside well protected. The flap gives an extra benefit.
The adjustable straps let’s you adjust the length of straps to your needs.
The final size of the backpack is:
- Height: 37cm
- Width: 28cm
- Depth: 15cm
The material I have used for crafting and sewing the backpack is polyester canvas and same material is used for the lining. Difference in lining and main front body of the bag is that I have fused the fabric of lining fabric with very lightweight fusible interfacing and for the main body I have sewn polyester sheet to the fabric to give extra strength and sturdiness. You can use fusible fleece of polyester sheet as per your liking and availability of materials.
