Sew it yourself! This Backpack Kit is a great project for someone just starting out with sewing or wanting to practice their skills. In fact, it’s our most beginner-friendly project kit. The fabric comes pre-plotted so all you have to do is cut out the pieces and assemble the bag — no figuring out measurements or calculations!
The backpack is made with Cordura® HP — a rugged and heavy-duty bag fabric. Cordura features excellent abrasion resistance and mold/mildew resistance. This high-tenacity polyester fabric woven from INVISTA™ has a clear polyurethane coating on one side, making it water-repellent and a great backpack to keep on your boat or for outdoor activities. It folds up and rolls for easy storage on your boat or RV where space is limited. The backpack features a front pocket and two side pockets.
Finished Measurements: 19-1/2"H x 13"W x 5"D

How to Make a Backpack Tutorial
This kit was a dream to sew up. The video shows every step clearly and I had no trouble putting it together. Everything was in the kit, even the thread, which was wonderful. I made it for my husband and he is thrilled.
I haven't sewn it yet but the sew lines are easy to see. I can't wait to sew it.
A great kit to work build your skills with
Kit looks great I have not put it together but it seems to be exactly what I ordered
Quality product but would have like written instructions and not just a video.
