FAQ Backpack class Questions!
Q - I am a beginner sewer - is this project suitable for me?
A - I would suggest you have a few projects under your belt before making the backpack, it is listed on the pattern as an intermediate skill level and requires some accurate seam allowances etc.
Q - I have a whole range of fabrics i'd like to use rather than just a couple is this ok?
A - The pattern uses heavier weight fabrics for the exterior and quilting cottons for the straps and lining etc - as long as your fabrics are similar weight then you are fine - just be aware lighter fabrics will lead to a less sturdy backpack so you may need heavyweight interfacing instead - if in doubt just get in touch.
Q - I've never used any metal bag hardware before, will i be OK?
A - You will be talked through the pattern and bag making process every step of the way so please don't worry at all.
