Bigger on the Inside Drawstring Backpack – PDF Pattern + How to Re-attach a Zipper Pull

Bigger on the Inside Drawstring Backpack Pattern by Erin Erickson

A very nice backpack sewing pattern with a drawstring closure, zippered front pocket, and lots of room for everything. Erin Erickson, who designed the bag, took your basic flat drawstring backpack (easy to sew!) and added some extra features such as a nice oval bottom that allows you to fit more inside the bag such as pretty slippers or a sweater.  You could even use this as a daycare bag, swim bag, or a sleepover bag.  I can see this backpack made of crazy animal prints, fun fur, vinyl, canvas, blue velvet, denim, heavy cotton, and rain-wear fabric.
