Hello and welcome to our shop where you can find downloadable patterns or templates for hand crafting leather products. Please read on for more info!
- This is a digital PDF pattern documented in English, containing an 18 page US_Letter format blueprint, a 7 page A3 format and a 5 page instructions file meant to guide you through creating a leather sling bag backpack as shown in the pictures. I made this for myself as I commute on my bike and I needed a small footprint backpack to carry my everyday stuff.
- There are two versions of this backpack, the one shown in the pictures and a larger version that can fit a 13 inch Mac. The second version requires a longer zipper and a buckle with an inner size of at least 35 mm.
- The backpack measures 480 x 200 x 200 mm ( ~19 x 8 x 8 inches ) and has two compartments.
- You will need two buckles with a at least 30 mm wide inner gauge and a zipper at least 300 mm ( ~12 inches ) in length. I used thicker 3 mm ( 7-8 oz ) leather for this project but you may do as you wish for every part of the backpack except the strap which should be thicker.
• The amount of leather required for this project will be approximately 5.3 square feet ( half a square meter ).
• You may use any tool to punch out the stitching holes but the holes are spaced such that you may use a Craftool no3 set of prongs to speed things up. Just google 'Tandy 88045-06’ for more info.
⚠️ Note that you will not be able to use this file for CNC or laser cutting as it does not contain XML data.
