The Luxe Sac converts from a tote to a backpack in just one tug, it’s stylish and strong
The drawstring backpack is a real fashion item at the moment – I’ve turned it into a real quality item that can be used every day, it’s substantial, fully lined and has tote handles so it can be used in two different ways.
Carry as a tote for a great look for the office or mall or pull on the ropes to close up and use as a really handy backpack for the gym or your commute home
The outside has a roomy zipped compartment large enough for all your essentials
Inside is a large zipped pocket for your valuables
Buy snazzy braided ropes or marine cord economically from Ebay or your local DIY stores. They really do set off the bag nicely and are available in a huge amount of colour mixes.
Make in any Medium to heavy weight fabric of your choice – You can use canvas, furnishing fabrics, vinyl, tweed, cordura, cork, oilskin or denims too.
Mix and match your fabrics or just make in a solid colour for a sophisticated look.
It’s a great bag for men too – make in oilskin for a beautiful rugged look
The pattern has pages full of colour photos and hints and tips for every step of make-up along with a full length sewalong video to explain everything in great detail so you can produce a really professional looking bag
