Switchback 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.

The bag measures 11"H x 11"W and expands from 3½"D at the top to 4½"D at the bottom. Switchback’s shape and design make it perfect for men or women of any age! There is a free Add-on Video ($5 value) with this pattern which is specially designed to support specific parts of the pattern.
