To launch the new and inspiring Bag-a-Week Showcase we are featuring this absolutely gorgeous Wayfarer 2.0 backpack sling bag beautifully crafted by Denise Sarchet-Trafelet using a combination of Harris tweed and a chrome tanned 3-4 ounce from Tandy leather called Laredo crazy horse leather. Denise used a regular woven SF101 interfacing and Decovil Light interfacing to the top gusset. A zippered convertible strap offers versatility for carrying and is meant to convert the strap from a sling bag to a split backpack strap. The Wayfarer 2.0 backpack sling bag pattern is by A Quaint Stitch and is available in two styles.
