Going to the fabric store today; I want to try and make one of these in regular size. I think it will be pretty neat to make my own backpack! I'll update this to let people know how it goes.

Meant to post this last night but i didnt hit send whoops I was at the fabric store (JoAnns) for about 2.5 hours, and I now have everything I need. There weren't any purse zippers long enough for a regular sized backpack, so I improvised and made a double zipper out of one of the Parka Zippers, which had two zippers just not connected in the right direction. I am now at the part where I need to connect the front pocket to the front of the bag. I have been working for about 3-4 hours now, and this includes cutting the fabric pieces I need. I messed up while cutting, so I'll let you all know that for a regular sized backpack, you are going to need about a full 1.5 yard of fabric long piece. I would just cut 7.5" from the fold on your fabric to get the piece you need for the middle! Note: Make sure you use coupons!

Where is the dimensions?

The sliders, zippers, and some colors for strap webbing are available from a company called Wawak in the US.
Also, if you go to the fjallraven website, you can get wax to make your bag water repellant

I just bought a sewing machine a few months ago and I decided to make this yesterday. I did end up with a bag, but it is a different bag haha. I couldn’t for the life of me make that front pocket, but other than that! Totally have a backpack(: thanks so much! I’m going to try again later!

I know I'll never do it, mainly because I don't have a sewing machine, and also I'm terrible at sewing two stitches together. But man, I like watching these diy sewing videos. It's kinda therapeutic hahah

Taylor (10 days ago)
I'm not rattled. Don't you have anything better to do than go to random videos of someone actually doing something you can't do and complain that it's too difficult for you just because you're a lazy piece of shit? Try making a grilled cheese sandwich. Or is that too difficult for you, sweetie? Honestly, I would rather be someone like Wendy than someone like you.
freya (10 days ago)
Taylor why are you so rattled lmao chill
Taylor (11 days ago)
freya You need to get a job if you spend all day on YouTube copying others and not being funny, lol.

I notice you used a zipper foot when attaching the back of the backpack. Why did you do this? To give you more of a visual of where the needle was going down?

Did you ad any seam allowance when you cut out the pieces?
Senpai Potato (4 months ago)
Someone’s trying to sell me a bag without the top connector part for the straps. And I’ve seen many people on YouTube without the connector for the straps too, and I’ve never owned kanken bags, so is it legit or what? Like are the connectors removable? Please help someone :((. Like the other stuff looks legit, everything’s right, except that there’s no connector.

anyone have any suggestions on specific fabrics that would work for this project? my area doesnt have any good fabric stores so was hoping to buy off amazon or online.

What about sizing up the backpack for containing more items? Just add inches onto the pieces?
omd! love you♥

You could also add a clip on those two zipper pull-things to make sure that the backpack is always safely closed

What type of thread did you use?
CalnCy Mommy (5 months ago)
I love this and will definitely be trying it. I have a question, did you have to use a certain needle for sewing? I have a singer sewing machine from Joanns and wouldn't have to replace a needle from it breaking if the fabric may be too thick
Bump688 (5 months ago)
I'm watching some of your videos, and all I keep saying is; "she's good, she's bloody good, wow" So there you are. You truly are amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your knowledge with us. You make some lovely items. Thank You.
