Sew a multifunctional bag with the Totepack!

Is it a tote bag? Is it a backpack? It's both! Meet the Totepack PDF Sewing Pattern.
Can't pick between a tote bag and a backpack? You can have both with the incredibly practical Totepack.
This multifunctional bag is a stylish tote bag and a handy backpack all in one. Fully lined and with a zip closure at the top to keep all your belongings secure, the Totepack features straps that ingeniously transform it from one thing to another.

Choose to carry it over one shoulder as a classic tote or on your back as a backpack whenever the situation requires it or the mood strikes you!

Big enough to carry a laptop, the Totepack includes a large pocket on the front with an optional snap fastener that's perfect for a bottle of water or to keep some snacks handy.

Make your Totepack in a medium to heavy weight woven fabric such as canvas, denim, cotton twill, panama or even corduroy and use a complementing cotton for the lining. Have a look at the beautiful versions made by our Pattern Insiders!

The Totepack is a Confident Beginner PDF sewing pattern and a great introduction to sewing bags if you've mostly sewn clothes.
