This is an intermediate pattern in that it uses advanced bag making techniques that require the sewer to have a general familiarity with bag making. It requires accurate cutting/sewing and installing a curved zipper which can be challenging for new sewers. This bag is "turned" through an opening left in the pocket which gives the bag a nice snug, finished lining so there is NO binding involved.
Specs: the finished pack is approximately 6” wide by 7 1/2” tall and is 2 1/2” deep. The shoulder strap is cut to 56” long (cut into 2 pieces) and fully adjustable. It features 1 interior zipper pocket.
