    The Odyssey Convertible Bag, an original Toriska pattern, is a trendy fashion backpack. It holds all your essentials and transitions easily from a backpack to a shoulder bag. Switch the straps around to create a crossbody bag or a sling. There are plenty of pockets so you don’t lose anything in your purse. The Odyssey works well in thin vinyl as well as fabric. The convertible option is written for the small size; the large size is written as a backpack only. The small size can also be made as a backpack only and works well as a toddler backpack. This pattern is suitable for intermediate to experienced bag-makers. It has two finishing options: a binding method or turning through a pocket.
