Marie Marie (16 days ago)
I was wondering that how much making this this would cost? Like 10-20 $/€ ? I had that mini fjällräven but i didn't like that material. So this would be nice someday when i got my nervs together :D

I really want to try to make this!! I've been taking sewing classes for quite some time, so I finally decided to buy myself a sewing machine recently and I'd absolute LOVE! to make this backpack! It does seem a little challenging of a project at some parts, but I think it'll definitely be worth the time! Also, I can totally tell you put a lot of hard work and effort into this video and the editing is super great too! <3

I'm a professional seamstress, and ill be honest with y'all, this is a pretty difficult project and even I feel like it would difficult to get a professional finish on your topstitching. But this is gorgeous work ! just curious, why did you use the zipper foot even after you finishrd with the zipper application ?

I just watched the whole thing to end up ordering a Kanken anyways
Ai Leen (24 days ago)
I'm trying this, I'll just make it a little bigger like the Kanken 20l. Hope it works out cause I can't afford a Kanken and I probably have enough money to buy the supplies.

Thank you so much by this tutorial! You explain in an really easy way, and I just can't wait to buy all the supplies to do mine as well! Hugs from Brazil!
I have 2.5 square yards of thin leather that I bought for a project only to realise it was to thin for what I wanted to achieve, thank you for making this and giving me a grand idea of what I can do instead! 😁

If I wanted the zippers to go across the top of the backpack, what would I do differently? I'm going to be cosplaying Peni Parker for a convention soon, and I think this is almost perfect!
Alyssa Estrada (2 months ago)
I made it! I had to watch and slow down the video but it's so cute! I'm glad I did it! For me 2 yards of fabric let me make two backpacks! Also I'm a plus size girl so I had to make my straps longer- other than that it's a good tutorial!

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.
Lily Hat (1 month ago)
I meant to update earlier this month, but I finished the backpack! It took me a month, but I only worked on the weekends or days I had the free time, so the actual time was probably less than a week. I bought a total of 2 yards of fabric to make a regular sized backpack (1.5 in my main color, .5 in my accent color). I still have some leftover. For the long piece of fabric that makes the sides, It takes about 1.5 yds of fabric, so I recommend using the folded over side of your fabric and cutting from the entire 1.5 yd length to make your sides. I made a mistake so I had to sew an extra piece to make the entire length (don't do that. I will explain later in this). For the zipper, I used a chunky parka zipper. I might use a finer-toothed zipper if I make another backpack though because it does not zip as fast as my normal school backpack. I recommend using more fabric to make the front pocket so you can fit more objects into it, as mine ended up pretty thin. It can hold my mini speaker though, so I'm still happy. I also recommend making the small strap loops at the bottom longer so you can sew it more and reinforce it. My backpack had an issue with one of the strap loops, so it fell out of the backpack. The other one remains fine though, so I think it also has to do with me having to sew an extra piece to my side fabric, as the break occurred at the same area (the fabrics folded upon each other made the backpack too thick to machine sew, so I had to hand sew that portion). Overall, this tutorial was pretty solid. The rest of my backpack is doing pretty well, and one of my cousins said it was pretty cool I made my own backpack. My art teacher was impressed too, so I might make another.

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!

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!
