Draw Strap Back Pack
We are adding the pattern to your Sewing Patterns.
The pattern was added to your Sewing Patterns.
Create a more comfortable drawstring backpack by making straps instead of using string. Straps won't dig into your shoulders like string or rope will. This pattern is made for beginning sewists in mind, because it uses basic straight line cutting & stitching. The free pattern is included. Personalize your back pack to included all the pockets you need on the inside and outside. With the cost of only thread and 1½ yards of fabric, you can make a unique backpack for less than one at the store.
