The Trekoda Mini Backpack

A PDF Sewing Pattern and Video Tutorial from Country Cow Designs

Trekoda Mini Backpack - PDF Bag Pattern with video tutorial - Country Cow Designs

The Trekoda Mini Backpack pattern from Country Cow Designs is for a versatile bag that's perfect for both kids and adults. It's an excellent choice for commuting, travel, school, or everyday use. This pattern does not require binding, and the bag interior includes a small zippered pocket. The sewing instructions also provide details on how to adjust and re-position the backpack straps for both adults and children. The bag's top comes in two shape/style options: a boxy shape or a round shape, and you can choose between a plain or cargo front pocket. Additionally, this sewing project doesn't require a drop-in lining, as the backpack is turned through the lining and sewn up through the zippered pocket for a neat finish. The exterior features a convenient slip pocket and zippered pocket with a flap. The pattern has no raw edges, so you can use cotton, cork, or vinyl, as long as your sewing machine can handle it. This is an intermediate-level pattern with finished dimensions of 11” tall x 9” wide x 4” deep.
