Come make a backpack with us! In this Intermediate level camp students will make a real backpack! This backpack includes a front pocket, interior zippered pocket, and useful top handles for carrying in addition to backpack straps. You’ll learn various bag making techniques such as installing a welt zipper pocket, installing an exposed zipper, attaching webbing, using foam stabilizer, and finishing seams with bias tape. This backpack is the perfect size for adventuring and is a great way to showcase a favorite fabric. For students entering grades 2-9 who have taken at least the Intro to Sewing class or camp.
