Paula is awesome! She made custom backpacks for me and I love every single one! I keep giving them away, except for Snoopy, he's mine! Everyone loves them! So cute, and so comfy! And I love to work with Paula, she is so sweet and patient! Definitely my favorite shop!

I love these bags! I had one made for me, fell in love with it, then bought this and another fabric pattern for my friends. We took them to Bonnaroo!! We got so many compliments, and it was the one thing I couldn't do without. They are so light, and a lot cooler than a backpack but hold just as much if not more. They got to me so quick too! Thank you!!! You made our weekend!

About

How the Cinch Backpack came to be..

I first made the cinch backpack for my sister. She had bought one from a major store & it had ripped after a few weeks. There was no lining, no pocket, and the straps were cording that dug into her shoulder. She asked me if I could make a better one. I made her one with a lining & a pocket on the inside. The straps are made of the same fabric and used them as a way to close the top of the bag. She loved it! Soon I was making them for my family & friends.
I started selling them at nearby craft fairs. My sister helped me start up this site on Etsy & things got busy from there. During the years, I have added Yoga Mat Bags, Bag Tubes for plastic bag storage, Halloween Bags, Holiday Bags, and Patchwork Totes. I was so happy when I made my first sales. I was excited when there were people in Australia who wanted my backpacks! I have to say thanks to all the people who have bought a bag from my store. Whether you're from the US or over seas, I truly appreciate you stopping by my store.
I have heard back from past buyers from craft fairs & on Etsy, that they still have their bags and it's lasted pretty well. There also have been return customers too.
I have a lot of leftover fabric that I can't get rid of, so I am putting together a new Patchwork Tote. I also take request for special orders for the Cinch Backpacks & Yoga Mat Bags. If you have a specific color, fabric, design, etc., let me know. I'll try to find it at my local fabric shops & send you pics to choose from.
