    Easy sew and great size. There is only one significant problem with this pattern…the mechanics of carrying a rucksack. The back straps should go in an downward direction in order to be carried comfortably. When I questioned this design flaw, I got no response from the pattern maker. Some one else stated…well, it’s a fashion statement, not an actual back pack. Well, I purchased the pattern to be used as a rucksack.
