The Connie Backpack Kit includes Connie paper pattern, as well as two 1" Gold Ladder Lock Slider Buckles and 3 yards of Beige Zipper with 9 gold pulls.
Ladder Lock Slider Buckles are designed to hold under tension and release by lifting the front tab. They allow you to adjust the length and tension of your straps. This buckle is a single sided ladder buckle, meaning it is easily adjustable from one end. This makes one-handed adjustment easy, whether releasing or tightening.
Sallie Tomato #5 Zippers by the Yard contain 3 yards of nylon zipper tape and 9 matching metal pulls. Coordinate the zipper tape color with your fabric and match the nylon coil color with your purse hardware! Easily cut and sew through the nylon teeth, while achieving the professional appearance of metal teeth. There is no need to worry about breaking a needle when you're using these zippers! The wider zipper tape also helps for easy insertion into your project. This size zipper is best used on the top of handbags, backpacks, totes, laptop carriers, and more!
Connie is a practical backpack tote which makes for a great hands free bag! This pattern has been cleverly designed to avoid using any bias binding. The name and design of this backpack was inspired by the movie, Palm Springs Weekend.
