What are you most proud of? The inside pockets. Yay zipper!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure everything is super square, and add the finishing hardware as close to the end as possible. I made the straps 32" (without seam allowance), and that feels like a good length. Hope you like it!

How great! I LOVE that you got creative and made the cinched top and backpack straps! Your bag turned out wonderfully. Great job! :)

Thanks! I based it off of a backpack that my sister was using. I was so surprised to realize it was that same basic shape! Thanks for a great class!

yay! A back pack! Been searching to see if anyone has adapted the design to make one. And such a beautiful one, too!
