Sew a tote bag and a backpack in one with 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 so you can 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.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
