Vacation Time Is Here! Making A Backpack Using Several Bernina Feet

Recently, I challenged myself to design and sew a backpack.  I used many stabilizers like sew in foam, decor bond and woven fusible to reinforce the backpack.  When sewing with my BERNINA 560, I had no difficulty at all sewing through these bulky and thick layers.   I also used my #12C Overlocker foot for piping on the backpack and my #4 zipper foot to add some functional zippered pockets to the backpack. With so many changes in feet during this project, it was quite easy to change a foot.  The design of the feet make it easy to put the feet on and take them off quickly.  I loved making this project on my BERNINA.  I also sewed mesh pockets on and used fold over elastic.   My machine had no difficulty at all with the different fabrics either.  This backpack is a pattern design I am working on and my BERNINA makes it a joy to test my patterns and sew them up on it.

    1. Hello,

      It has some features that are more complex, however, my patterns all have full color pictures with each step. Each step also includes in-depth directions. When writing a pattern, I am sure not to assume the sewer has a particular skill level so I write the patterns to be followed easily. If you subscribe to my site at quirkyb.com , you will be notified when this pattern becomes available as well as others. I also offer video tips for different techniques.

      Thank you so much,
