By Annies Sewing Pattern – Switchback Convertible Backpack/Shoulder Bag
Pattern no. PBA295 Printed Pattern
This sturdy and versatile satchel is just the right size for running around town or taking on a trip. Adjustable straps make it easy to carry the bag in a variety of ways: over the shoulder, cross body, or as a backpack.
Switchback is designed to be made with a variety of fabrics, alternating them for a fun color-block style. The color-block design shows on both the front pocket and flap AND on the bag back.
A recessed zipper at the top keeps everything safe and secure and the flap may be secured to the front of the bag using attached hardware. Accessory straps on each side of the bag may be used to secure a ring of keys or a carabiner, or they may be used to help shape and close the bag. Exterior and interior pockets in a variety of styles carry and organize all of the day’s essentials.
Switchback’s shape and design make it perfect for men or women of any age!
The bag measures 11″H x 11″W x 3½” D at top, 11″H x 11″W x 4½”D at bottom.
The pattern calls for ByAnnies Soft and Stable which is a lightweight foam which gives body to the bag. This material is available in the UK, but can be quite expensive. A good alternative to this is Vlieseline Sew In Foam which is available within this shop.
