Handle, Straps & Flap (32:27)
Start your backpack by cutting and joining bias binding strips. Find out how to sew a padded handle, straps and strap tabs, as well as a front flap with a magnetic snap.
Make your backpack super-functional by creating pockets! You’ll learn to make slip pockets for credit cards, a zippered quilted pocket and a zippered mesh pocket.
Zipper Strips & Side Strip (18:49)
Insert the double-slide zipper into your backpack’s zipper strips. Annie shows you how to shape and attach the zipper strip to the side strip to create the side area of your backpack.
Backpack Front & Back (27:27)
In this lesson you’ll complete the front and back panels of your backpack by adding all of your interior and exterior pockets. Then Annie demonstrates how to shape the corners for professional results.
Completing the Backpack (33:40)
End class by assembling the front, back and sides of your backpack. You’ll see how to sew and bind the inner seams using bias binding, and how to properly assemble and adjust your straps. Polish it up by adding zipper pulls.
