Sewing Tutorial: Make a Roomy Fold-Over Backpack

August 8, 2019

This bag is a win for back-to-school or bopping around town.

Your bag won’t get lost in the fray when it looks like this. That’s the best thing about making your own accessories after all – you get to choose the fabric. But this backpack from Sew4Home offers a lot more: its generous size and added features make it uber functional. So whether you’re headed back to campus, or just across town this backpack fits the bill.

It’s a looker, huh? Jump over to Sew4Home to get the full sewing tutorial and sewing products supply list. We especially love the bold fabric from Premier Prints that was used for this backpack – it pairs so nicely with our Dritz 1-1/2″ red belting.  When choosing your fabric, note that there are many colors of Dritz belting available, so you’re sure to find the perfect match.

Let’s talk about the features we really love. First: it’s spacious and uncomplicated – not too many pockets, just a nice large bag to house items and access them easily. Next: it’s comfortable to carry. The adjustable straps are made with Dritz rectangle rings and slides.

A swivel hook/D-ring combo fastens the front of the bag – secure and super stylish.
