The Clamshell Sling by Spencer Ogg Sewing Patterns

 Clamshell Sling

The first featured pattern in our “soft” trials was the Clamshell Sling. If you thought Bum Bags were a thing of the past you were wrong.

Can be worn around the waist or as a sling and who knew you could fit so many pockets into a little bag.

As always Diane's patterns are easy to follow and full of great tips.

    The Vega Backpack by Crafted By Leanne

    Vega Backpack

    A fun and functional backpack...with NO BINDING? Yep, due to its crafty construction there is not a stitch of binding in sight.

    This nifty backpack has a handle as well as straps and features an interior zipper pocket and a slip pocket.

    But the really cool thing is this: Lift the flap and uncover a vertical zipper which undoes all the way to the bottom of the bag, peeling back the sides for easy access to all your goodies.
