Whether you’ve fully embraced the backpack trend or you’re still on the fence, you’ll love reading about our favorite backpack sewing patterns. Backpacks are a definite favorite around here: strap one on for a quick hike in the mountains, use one as a cool next step or alternative to the traditional diaper bag or make one that’s perfect for the office so you’re hands-free for your commute. Here are a few of our favorites.
Desmond Roll Top by Taylor Tailor
No matter what you sew the Desmond Roll Top Backpack up in, the results seem to be stunning! Take it from me, I’ve now made four. The styling has a slightly rugged vibe and the inside is roomy, perfect for toting around town on errands or as a work bag. Size the pattern up or down and you’ve got a trendy everyday backpack or luggage built to travel.
Range Backpack by Noodlehead Sews
The Range Backpack has a similar roll-top style, though is a bit more structured. This one is a definite possibility for school – it’s big enough to wrangle books and folders. Bring in some high-end fabrics to vary the look easily: faux leather or cork give this bag instant high-end appeal.
London Backpack by LBG Studio
Maximize a fun or interesting fabric with a basic backpack pattern! The London Backpack is a perfect canvas for fabric fun. And the perfect size too! It’s the perfect little-person backpack, but in the right fabric, totally sophisticated.
Retro Rucksack by Radiant Home Studio
The Retro Rucksack might be our top pick for combining a very usable size and design with rugged details that make it feel special. It looks like it came right from a high-end store!
Juki Backpack by Elbe Textiles
The Juki Backpack makes my old-school heart happy! This design is so classic and timeless, just right for errands, a quick overnight or a walk in the woods. Perfect for a dude or a kiddo, too!
