Join Jess from Sallie Tomato in the Shaw Online Class! Shaw is a simple backpack that comes in three sizes! This pattern has been cleverly designed to avoid using any bias binding. I’ll take you step-by-step so you’ll produce a professional looking bag. Here is a breakdown of the video:


  • Attach Foam to Coordinating Pieces (0:58)
  • Prepare Cork Front Bottom (3:16)

    RECOMMENDED FABRICS: For the best results, use quilt weight cotton, canvas, pro lite cork fabric, denim, or linen for the exterior. I recommend quilt weight cotton for the lining.
