Learn How to Sew a Classic Drawstring Patchwork Backpack

Patchwork backpack sewing project from Bernina + Art Gallery Fabrics

A fun sewing project to create a classic drawstring patchwork backpack that will still look fab for years to come. The sample bag in the photo above was sewn with a delicious BERNINA 550 Quilters Edition machine and showcases Art Gallery Fabrics‘ Denim Studio Fabrics. This free tutorial by also demonstrates how to use decorative stitches, (we love the “arrow” stitch used here), as well as how to use the automatic buttonhole foot with a slide. See more about the Bernina 550 sewing machine here. Lots to learn within this tutorial if you are a confident beginner!
