Connie pattern by Sallie Tomato


Connie is a practical backpack tote which makes for a great hands free bag! This pattern has been cleverly designed to avoid using any bias binding. The name and design of this backpack was inspired by the movie, Palm Springs Weekend.


FINISHED SIZE: Choose between two sizes, full or mini. The finished size of the mini is 9" wide, 12" high, and 3" deep. The finished size of the full is 11" wide, 15" high, and 4" deep.


FEATURES: Carry handles, an exterior slip pocket, covered front zipper pocket, adjustable straps, double slide zipper top closure, and optional mesh pockets

HARDWARE REQUIRED: The only hardware required is a set of Ladder Lock Buckles for the adjustable padded straps.

ZIPPER REQUIRED: This pattern requires a 8” single slide and 18” (or longer) single slide zipper for the mini, 10” single slide and 22” (or longer) double slide zipper for the full.
