    I just love the new Boothstown Backpack – love the size, shape and the incredible amount of storage space. Check it out!

    Although this is rated as an intermediate level pattern, it wasn’t difficult for me – a beginner. Dianes written step-by-step instructions were spot on and lead me to success.

    There is a Video Tutorial now as well. Diane walks us through every step visually and makes it fun to make this Boothstown Backpack. I love this pattern and the personalization possibilities – casual, dressed up, rugged or for the kids-grandkids too.

    I couldn’t stop at one – let’s see – can you? Join our Facebook group and be sure to show us your makes, we love to see your fabric choices to inspire us to make another. We can’t wait to see yours!

    Such a gorgeous pattern! Video with full easy to follow instructions is a great bonus. I’ve made 3 so far with a fourth one planned. Highly recommend this pattern.
