What you will need to make a Heart Backpack:-

  • 1/2 a yard (44″ wide) of main woven fabric such as quilting cotton or home décor weight fabric. If you use home décor weight fabrics then it will increase the stability of the finished backpack.
  • 1-yard (44″ wide) of fabric such as quilting cotton for the lining and straps.
  • 2-yards of fusible interfacing (20″ wide Pellon SF101).
  • 3/4 of a yard (45″ wide Pellon) of fusible fleece.
  • Two 1.5″ wide bag strap adjuster sets. However, the designer says if you prefer, you could use actual backpack strap adjusters or 2 sets of D rings (and adjust the width and length of the straps accordingly).
  • One 9″ non-separating zipper.
  • 40″ double fold 1/2″ wide bias tape – pre-made or custom made.
  • Basic sewing supplies.
  • A sewing machine.
