Connie is a practical backpack tote which makes for a great hands free bag! This pattern has been cleverly designed to avoid using any bias binding. The name and design of this backpack was inspired by the movie, Palm Springs Weekend.
FEATURES: carry handles, an exterior slip pocket, covered front zipper pocket, adjustable straps, double slide zipper top closure, and optional mesh pockets
FINISHED SIZE: Choose between two sizes, full or mini. The finished size of the mini is 9" wide, 12" high, and 3" deep. The finished size of the full is 11" wide, 15" high, and 4" deep.
RECOMMENDED FABRICS: For the best results, use quilt weight cotton, canvas, denim, or linen for the exterior. I recommend quilt weight cotton for the lining.
HARDWARE REQUIRED: The only hardware required is a set of Ladder Lock Buckles for the adjustable padded straps.
This pattern would not be possible without my wonderful group of pattern testers! I appreciate their hard work!
