The McFly & Mini McFly Backpack - Sew and Sell

A PDF Sewing Pattern from Allsewpetite

The McFly is an ideal backpack for school, the beach, a market, or commuting to work. This pattern is available in two sizes: (regular) McFly and (mini) McFly. The regular McFly is large enough to carry a small laptop, books, A4/letter-size files, and more. Wide padded shoulder straps make this backpack comfortable to carry. The Mini McFly is the perfect size to carry as a daily casual bag. Both McFly and Mini McFly are zippered-top backpacks with a handle, adjustable straps, and an oval base. The front of the bag is shaped using darts and features a zippered pocket. The exterior side pockets are perfect to keep a small water bottle or a compact umbrella. The spacious interior also features a slip pocket and a zippered pocket to help you stay organized. The perfect backpack for all ages.
