Whoo! I made another backpack!

The moment I saw this fabric I knew it had to transform into a backpack. I waited for some time before actually having the courage to cut it, but in the end I was happy I did.

The fabric is awesome, it looks like cotton on the outside but it’s stiff and impermeable on the inside. Looks like cotton, behaves like oilcloth? Magic.

I made up the pattern looking at an old backpack I had in the house. I also reused the straps because they were in perfect state. For the back part of the backpack I used quilt batting.

Since the fabric was stiff enough I didn’t have to use lining, so sewing the whole thing was pretty easy. Way easier than I expected.

    1. Thank you :> I’m thinking to put up a pattern and tutorial, because anyone should be able to make their own backpack!

    Hola Ina: estoy sorprendida y maravillada con la habilidad que tienes en la costura. Esa “mochila” (es un nombre colombiano) es muy, muy bonita. Yo pensaría que es muy difícil de hacer. Yo soy muy mala para coser. No se hacer ni un dobladillo. Qué vergüenza. No?
    Hace dias queria escribirte y aproveché y lo hice pues me sorprendió tu habilidad. Te envío un abrazo grandísimo y mis felicitaciones.

    1. Hola Belén,

      Me siento muy halagada por tus palabras. La verdad es que la tela es no solo muy bonita, pero tambien muy adecuada para este tipo de bolso.

      Muchas gracias por tu comentario y te devuelvo el abrazo 🙂
