I just finished building a prototype (cheap materials) of this pack before I make the real thing and it turned out great. This is a great design and the community that Stephen Jones of Bag Buff created on Facebook is a great resource for answering questions related to materials and the build itself. I highly recommend this pattern as a way to cut your teeth on pack making.
Thanks for the review Rich! Making a prototype bag is great way to practice before the real thing. We love the Bag Buff patterns!
Ironed the pattern flat on low heat, cut out the template, signed up to Bag Buff for additional input. Bingo! I actually made a backpack! Very pleased.
Awesome! We're glad you are happy with the results and be sure to share photos with us, we would love to see!
