Shark Backpack sewing pattern (+ video)

This is the Shark Backpack pdf sewing pattern from the designer Studio 7t7.

The Shark Backpack is an awesome shark shaped backpack with fun features. It’s perfect for kids and teens (and fun-loving adults) with gusseted sides and pockets for organisation on the move. Let your imagination run wild with the colors and prints, or make it in a classic grey.

This bag features two zipper pockets (one on the inside and one on the outside), a slip pocket inside and pen slots. It has a fully lined construction and a special technique for the straps that you will want to use on lots of projects!

When you make your very own Shark Backpack it will measure approximately 46 cm (18⅛”) high by 36 cm (14 3/16″) wide by 21 cm (8¼”) deep.

The designer rates her sewing project as suitable for confident beginner sewers.
