Andrea's Rucksack is a quick and easy sew you just may want to make one for everyone you know! Inspired by someone very close to my heart- the backpack that is sure to stand out in the crowd. Andrea's Rucksack features zip top fastening and a fold over design, A wide opening with zip closure folds down into a sleek and chic backpack and is secured with a clasp. Handy zip pockets in front for keys or other quick access items, and a large zip pocket inside for your personal things.
A grab handle and adjustable shoulder straps that make it comfortable to wear on your back when out and about, or sling over one shoulder for casual comfort.
The pattern includes two sizes: Purse sized-perfect for everyday use: 13" Tall, 11" Wide, and 4" Deep Large sized for a hands-free day out: 16" Tall, 14" Wide, and 5" Deep
Andrea's Rucksack is a streamlined design that is appropriate for all occasions. The small sized is perfect for a child's backpack. The large makes a great take to work bag or even a men's backpack.
