I really like the pattern. Makes a beautiful and comfortable backpack.
The instructions are very difficult to use and understand. All written in shorthand abbreviations. It required lots of back and forth from a cheatsheet. Still some parts were never clear to me. As an experienced sewer I was able to figure it out after some trial and error and plenty of stitch ripping.
If the instructions were improved this could be 5 star. As they are now, i found it almost unusable so I have to give it a 2star. I could never suggest this to a beginner. I guess most people also pay for an additional video to do the same as the instruction, but was warned that was confusing as well so chose not to.
Hey Zach, we are sorry the pattern instructions were hard to follow. We do plan on giving them a refresh soon. If you have any questions, please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
I really enjoyed building my first MYOG backpack, using these plans along with the video training tool. I’m looking forward to building another one real soon.
Thanks so much for the review! We're glad you had fun making your own pack, it's pretty addicting! We'd love to see your final project, be sure to tag us on social media!
