Make sure to explore the articles as well as different web links to uncover vital sources concerning buying. Most of the write-ups in this site have been created by true professionals in the subject so please read as well as browse also various other posts like the one below.

Blocks.  Beach Toys.  Storybooks.   Secret treasures.  Picnic lunch.  These are only a few things that may be stuffed inside these Quick Four Fat Quarter Backpacks for kids and grownups.

I’m Barbara Esposito @TheQuiltedB, and I am back at the Moda Bake Shop with a crazy fast job for you.  Sometimes I just need a fast sew which doesn’t require me to believe too much.  No starching, seam fitting trimming half square triangles!  Just a fast, git-r-done, instant gratification kind of job.

I love making these and I suspect you will want to make one (or a dozen) too.  They are that fun.  And that fast!  They’re great beginner jobs too.  I use mine when Joe and I go biking or once I take the littles to get a train ride.  I enjoy making them for gifts for both kids and grownups.

These bags end at 13″ by 14″ for your youth dimensions and 15″ by 17″ for the adult size but frankly you can make them whatever size suits you!

This cute fat quarter bundle is”Later Alligator” by Sandy Gervias.  It’s ideal for these child’s backpacks!

Each backpack uses about 4 pounds, cut as listed below

Here’s the basic edition.  The adult and children’s bags build at the specific same way, measurements for the adult tote are in parentheses.

Dimensions are width by height.

From each fat quarter cut a bit 13″ by 16″From each fat quarter cut a piece 16″ by 20″
Cut 2 pieces of cord, every 1-1/2 yards longCut two pieces of cord, every two yards long
From the twill tape clip two pieces 3″ extendedIn the twill tape cut two pieces 3″ extended

Ready?  Set?  Sew!

Place both liner pieces right sides together.  (I included some Dottie in orange to my liner .)

Sew them together on the 13″ (16″) side.  Repeat with the remaining outer pieces.  Press seams open.

Lay these pieces straight Sides together and sew 1/4″ around the outside leaving roughly 3-4 inches wide for turning the tote.

Clip corners and turn right side out.  Give it a quick press.

At this point you might choose to sew the opening closed OR you can sew it up when you sew up the sides.

Twist to the exterior about 1-1/4″ (2″) on both sides and stitch close to the edge of the folded bit.  This becomes the casing for the series.

Next, fold the twill tape in half lengthwise then again fitting the brief raw edges, which makes it 1-1/2″ by 1/2″ doubled.

Place it half way down the long side of the sewn rectangle on either side, loop sticking out and tack in place.

(Note:  You can also tuck it when stitching up the side shots )

The rectangle gets folded in half fitting up the short sides.

Stitch up the side seams back tacking over the twill tape continued to just under the casing.  Back tack here too.

I like to use a 1/4″ seam since I really like to observe the interior fabric peeking out on the sides.  If you prefer a tidier look, use a 1/8″ seam.  Either way just make sure you grab the opening from when you flipped the rectangle straight sides out if you didn’t sew it shut when you turned it.

Thread the cable through both sides of the casing and then tie it in a knot via the twill loops.

Done!  Done?  Yes DONE!  This bag?  Just under 30 minutes.

Option Choice:

Working together with 4 different fat quarters, I often just use them is — each piece of this bag is a different fabric.

Should you prefer a more symmetrical appearance that is all you need to do:

Cut the Fat Quarters 13″ by 16-1/2″ (16″ by 20-1/2″) then cut each in half.

Continue sewing the bag as directed above.

To Bring a zip pocket to front:

In the pocket cloth and interfacing cut a rectangle 10″ by 12″.

Secure the ends of your toenails with a few stitches.

Place the outer cloth side up on your cutting table.

Put the interfaced pocket right side down on the outer fabric, centered side to side and approximately 4-1/2″ down from among the short sides.  Pin in place.

Assess the length of your zipper.  It must measure 7″ from the tab into the metal stop at the bottom.

Put the zipper onto the interfacing, based side to side, and one inch from the top of the pocket.

Mark the interfacing at the middle of the zipper on both sides.

Twist the zipper down and make a line so long as the zipper measurement between the tab and metallic stop at the base.

Draw a line a scant 1/4″ above and below on the line and mark side lines to complete the rectangle.

Draw arrows on both ends pointing towards the middle.

Stitch around the outer rectangle only.

Utilize your seam ripper or a very sharp pair of scissors and cut on the line through all layers but don’t cut beyond the points of the arrows.

Next snip the arrows as close to the corners as you can get without cutting on the stitched line.

Tuck the pocket inside of the slit you simply cut and press it flat.

Prepared for the BEST suggestion you could possibly have regarding zippers?  Use a little bit of white school glue to glue it in place.

Press the zipper with no steam to set the glue.

On the ideal side, together with your zipper foot, topstitch around the opening.

Twist the pocket in half, right sides together and stitch around the perimeter to close up the pocket.

Continue with the bag structure as previously.

Four simple Fat Quarters make adult and either or kid ’s string backpack!

I hope you enjoy creating these Quick Four FQ Backpacks.  Those that I created here are led to a regional women and children’s shelter.  It would be so awesome if you would consider making an additional to share.  As always, if you do get an opportunity to create one (or a dozen) make sure you label me @TheQuiltedB and utilize #fffqb.  Nothing makes a maker happier than to see her makes made!

Now go awry!
