Batala Backpack

Batala Backpack Digital Sewing Pattern Download from Pink Pony Designs
practical and pretty backpack purse with pockets for your phone, shopping lists, wallet, car keys, etc. This bag by Pink Pony Designs, holds it shape very well despite the half-circle sides which give us those beautiful folds at the sides. An ideal bag size to replace your everyday handbag, it’s comfortable to carry with it’s padded, adjustable straps. You can easily hang it up at the end of the day from the big D-ring. You close your Batala Backpack with a drawstring, and the magnetic snap locks the flap into place. On the backside you have a secure zippered pocket. The Batala Backpack interior has a zippered pocket and slip pocket for your phone.  This backpack purse measures 12″ high and 7″ wide at the top once completed.
