SKU: TCT112 Category:


Approximate finished size is 14″ tall x 12″ wide x 3½” deep.

The Town & Country Backpack is a great medium sized backpack with 6 pockets. There is one horizontal zippered pocket located securely underneath the large front flap and another vertical zippered pocket on the back of the backpack. You can hide your valuables in this back pocket and keep it close to you at all times. The two pleated pockets on the lower front have a flap with a hook and loop closure. Inside you will find one patch pocket that is divided into 2 smaller pockets. The top of the backpack closes with 2 magnetic snaps along the side seams that pleat the sides together under the front flap. The large front flap is a great place to add some creativity to your backpack and personalize it to your style. The flap has a magnetic snap that holds it securely to the front of the backpack.

Fabric recommendations: Quilting weight cottons, denim, tapestry, decorator fabrics, and canvas.

    I made this backpack out of quilting cottons for my 11-year-old granddaughter. She just loves it! The directions and illustrations make it easy to follow, and the materials purchased at your booth at the Pennsylvania Quilt Show give it a very professional look. A word of warning: This is NOT a project for beginners! But the results are soooo satisfying! Another note — there is a discrepancy on Piece #13, the Front and Back Lining. The cutting directions say cut two pieces 15″w x 17″ h. The labels for Piece #13 say 15″w x 17 1/2″h. I did it according to the label, and it worked.

      I’m so happy that you finished and love the backpack, thank you for taking the time to write to me. I did know about the label error and have fixed it in the most recent printing. Either measurement will work, but I thought that the 17″ fit a bit better. I hope your granddaughter gets lots of enjoyment using her backpack that Gramma made. Laura

    I love this backpack! I made it to carry my dog’s water bowl, water and cleanup supplies along with my own things. It makes traveling and touring different places with my dog SO much easier. I like that it’s hands-free and comfortable. Of course, it’s also very stylish! I get nearly as many compliments on my bag as I get on my sweet dog. I’ve also made numerous Professional Totes. Your pattens are simply outstanding. Thank you!

      Anita, Thank you for wonderful comments about the backpack pattern. I’m so glad that it fits your needs and even your dogs needs all in one. I also appreciate your kind words about the Professional Tote pattern, it’s an oldie but a goodie. Thanks again for making my day. Laura
