Hey Everyone! I just wanted to let you know that the Fun Sized Backpack Pattern has been updated!
There was an error on the Bottom Pocket Gusset piece. It should measure 12.75 inches in length. If you have downloaded the original pattern please make sure to take note of this change!
The pattern has now been updated and is linked below. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience! A special thanks to Shirley for pointing out the discrepancy in the pattern so it could be fixed! Thanks, Shirley!
Looking for a Valentine’s Day project! Check out my new llama plush posted earlier this week!

I’m so happy I found you! My 2021 resolution is to learn to sew, and I am a complete beginner. I discovered you on YouTube and I was watching the “Level 1 lesson 5” video about measuring and just wanted you to know I needed all those tips to help me cut something out! The rotary cutter really helps me. I look forward to all I will learn from you!
I am so glad that the tutorials were helpful!!! Thank you for sharing, it made my day 🙂
Does this fit a 8-1/2×11 paper notebook?
Does this fit a 8-1/2×11 sized notebook?
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, an 8.5 x 11 inch notebook does not fit well in this backpack. Technically, you can squeeze it in if the bag is not too full, but I wouldn’t recommend it. The backpack is slightly more narrow than the notebook at the top and so the top corners of the notebook could get bent or damaged. Similarly, if you had a lot of items in the backpack it may not fit at all as you would have difficulty closing the zipper. Hope this helps!
do you have larger size available as I llike to make 11×13″
Hi Sally! Unfortunately, I do not have a larger backpack pattern. However, I have had a few requests for one. If a larger pattern becomes available I will be sure to let you know!
