    This backpack is a new design based on the popular backpack No. 1.

    As opposed to backpack No. 1 this backpack can be made without any leather and you will only need to buy little hardware. A fabric channel with drawstring serves as the closure mechanism.

    This casual backpack is compact in size but still fits a writing pad in A4 or US Letter format. The back is reinforced with optional back padding which gives the backpack some structure and also helps to protect your back.

    Width: 33cm (13in) Height: 34cm (13in) Depth: 18cm (7in)

    This sewing tutorial is for intermediate and advanced sewers.
