Lucy Backpack

Inspired by mini backpack purses of the 90’s, Lucy features three pockets with a roomy interior. Grommets are optional and instructions are included to make a drawstring casing. Choose either an adjustable zippered strap which converts from a one shoulder strap to a two shoulder strap, or two separate adjustable straps.

    Such a lovely pattern and bag! Instructions are clear and well written. I recommend it for intermediate sewists, who are practiced in topstitching. If you don’t want the strap closure, you could use parachute buckles, magnetic snaps or twist lock etc.
