Backpack Bag Tutorial - in yummy oilcloth
I have always wanted to make a
'just the right size' 
backpack bag because as a city dweller it'sgood to have a nifty bag that will securely hold the essentials, but will leave your arms free soyou can more easily carry your bags of shopping. I want to point out that this bag is notentirely my own design. I have had some help in the shape of thisJapanese tutorial.All Ihave done is to add a mag snap and a drawstring closure (there were no instructions for aclosure on the Japanese tute?) Anyhoo, I'm pretty chuffed with my first backpack especiallyas my Japanese is worse than my Chinese and the end result is indeed 'just the right size'. It'salso a good size for little ones too.This bag is not the easiest ever bag to make, but then it's not very hard either. There's just afair few steps. I hope you'll think that they are worth it; I know I do. I do love this bag. FYII got the oilcloth from a Dept. store called John Lewis in London.When sewing with oilcloth you'll make your life much easier if you get your hands on a jeansneedle and a Teflon coated machine foot (non-stick foot) and they look like this...
fend off the maddening crowds
 Here is the backpack in all of it's oilcloth glory it's: 30cm tall x 17cm wide x 11cm deep. Of course you can make this backpack in normal fabric (which will make things a bit easier), but if you've done a bit of sewing before you'll be fine sewing this in oilcloth - honest! The bag has a mag snap flap (say that fast 3 times) and drawstring closure. Do you like the little green dots on the ends of my ties? :)
