Amy Backpack sewing pattern by ChrisW Designs

Amy in Amy Butler Fabric


The Amy backpack is both stylish and useful too!  Even though overall it is relatively small, it is quite roomy with loads of pockets to keep everything organized!

Complete with a large front exterior zippered pocket, an elastic front pocket and two elastic side pockets. The main pocket is zippered and inside there is a large slip pocket as well!

Finished bag size = Approx. 30cm (12″) X 33cm (13″) X 10cm ( 4″)
