Made By Me Backpack

August 29, 2020

Written by Anna White

I just finished up my first Begonia Backpack, a pattern by Blue Calla Patterns. It was easy to make and one of my favorite patterns now. I can’t wait to make several more for the grandkids. I already have the fabric for one granddaughter. Just need to purchase for a couple more grandkids once I figure out the design I want to go with.

The first pic shows the fabric I choose which I purchased from JudysFabStash on Etsy. The blue faux leather was purchased from BurlapFabriccom on Etsy. Both shipped in a matter of days and I was more than happy with the service provided by both companies.

This pic shows the pattern pieces cut out, which is very easy to do. The instructions are easy to read and follow.

The following pics show the front and back. I love the pockets, which give you plenty of room for a phone, keys and more. I can’t wait to start using this back every day. I will be changing out the straps once I get some paracord as I don’t really like the fabric straps.

What’s your favorite backpack pattern? Have you ever made a pattern from Blue Calla?
