The Mini McFly Backpack

I tested this Mini McFly backpack recently from All Sew Petite. For a limited time the pdf pattern for the McFly Backpack is on sale for £6.40 (or about $8.80 in USD).

The measurements of the Mini McFly backpack:  25 cm / 31 cm / 13 cm (10” / 12 1/4” / 5”)
(The regular McFly backpack measurements: 31 cm / 36 cm / 15 cm (12 1/4” / 14” / 6”)

The pdf come with a regular size backpack and the mini size that I made too. The mini is the perfect size to carry for running about town, or on short hikes where you only need to carry a few items with you. The mini is still quite roomy inside and sports 2 exterior side pockets, a front zipper pocket and an interior zipper pocket with a divided slip pocket, making 2 slip pockets inside too. (I also added an extra front slip pocket to my bag behind the zipper, but that is not in the instructions). There is a hanging loop and 2 adjustable straps, and of course a zipper closure to close the main compartment. 

The bag is sewn in an ingenious way and there are no binding of any seams! I loved this so much, I am keeping this bag for myself!

I chose a large floral cotton canvas material for the main exterior fabric and a blue
 quilting cotton accent for the side pockets and straps and the back of the bag.

I made a zipper pull with beads and a charm in the shape of a hand that has handmade stamped onto it.

The main zipper is unzipped showing the inside of the bag here. I used a fuchsia color water proof canvas for the lining with the blue accent on the slip pocket and around the zipper.

The backpack has an oval bottom, so it sits nicely. I didn't add purse feet to this bag, but you could.
