backpack patterns on sale!

I'm still here, just working to catch some deadlines. The fall Oliver + S patterns are almost sent to the printer, and I'll be so relieved when they've gone.

In the meantime, we're offering a special summer sale on the crazy-popular Day in the Park Backpack Tote pattern. If you've been waiting to make one of these, here's your chance: they're 50% off for a limited time!

This is a good pattern to try if you're relatively new to sewing. I designed it for my students who had finished the beginning class and were ready to try sewing from a pattern. The instructions are very clear and detailed, and there are lots of fun little details like a simple zippered pocket at the inside of the bag.

You can see many other finished bags in the backpack Flickr group if you're looking for a little additional inspiration.


  1. Thank you!! I've been eyeing this for months and this was the nudge I needed. :)

  3. I made one, and the instructions are very clear, and I get comments all the time about my bag. It's a great pattern

  4. I've been thinking about a hunting down a new many-pocketed bag to make for my summer vacation, and this just might be the one! Thanks, Liesl.

  5. I am so excited to try this pattern! I'm currently waiting on it to get here. Thank you!!!!
