I sewed both of these backpacks at a great class I took at Klum House last weekend. The pattern is Slabtown Rolltop Backpack, designed in-house by Ellie Lum, who is both an amazing bag designer and a gifted teacher. Both bags are sewn from Pendleton fabrics and waxed canvas, and I love all of the details – zippered front pouch, magnetic snaps, the rolltop closure and the top hook that gives you another way to carry it. Even the straps are leather sewn onto cotton webbing. Each of the details contributes to the bag’s overall practicality, usefulness, and professional appearance.
