The backpack is approx 15" wide x 15" tall x 4" deep. A pattern piece for the pocket is included; cutting instructions are included for the rest of the pieces, which are all easy rectangles.

1 yard focus fabric
1 yard coordinating fabric
2 1/4 yards lightweight fusible interfacing
4” of 3/4” wide elastic
2” D-ring
washable pen
1 safety pin (to pull the elastic through the casing)


Aivilo Charlotte Sewing Patterns are written in everyday English, as if a friend were telling you how to sew, with full color photos illustrating the process step-by-step. Each pattern is tested by a panel of sewists of many skill levels - to ensure the instructions are clear so you can enjoy a frustration-free sewing experience. Plus, if you have any questions while sewing, I'm always available at aivilocharlotte [!at] gmail.com to help you. Check my feedback for actual customer comments on the ease of use of my patterns!
