Bailey Backpack Pattern - PDF Download
The Bailey Backpack is a small backpack design that can even be created as a mini with multiple different front panel options.
The pattern was designed for quilting cotton and can be made on a domestic sewing machine! However, depending on your machine, you can certainly try accents in cork or vinyl, but adjustments to interfacing and stabilizers may be required..
This bag is soft-sided and gives you the options you need to make it as unique as you or your customer! The pattern includes two sizes, the small size for an adult or carrying more items or the mini size for carrying just your essentials. It has a pop-out pocket option that gives you extra storage space, a flat hidden zipper pocket option to protect your items, or a flat front with no pocket so you can feature your own design. The adult straps are ideal for most individuals, but included are some optional toddler straps, so if you add it to the mini, your little one can carry their own bag comfortably. Inside you will find a zipper pocket, a slip pocket, and a super snug lining that is sewn into all the edges for a clean finish - my usual style.
Finished sizes are as follows:
- Small: 9-1/2” (24 cm) wide, 11-1/2” (29 cm) tall and 4” (10 cm) deep
- Mini: 7-1/2” (19 cm) wide, 10-1/2” (27 cm ) tall and 3-1/2” (9 cm) deep
Your pattern comes in a PDF downloadable format filled with diagrams to walk you through the creation of your bag. All curved pattern pieces are included in your file, although the rectangles have measurements provided within your cutting list to cut with a ruler and rotary cutter.
One of my testers has done up a FULL tutorial to help you make the Bailey Backpack, you can view it on YouTube.
I hosted a video Sew Along - see all the videos on YouTube.
