The Clover is a medium sized bag and as the name implies, it can convert from a backpack to a cross body bag. The pattern comes with instructions to make a train case style bottom as a more advanced option.

Regardless of which version you choose to make, both have 2 exterior zippered pockets under the flap. The flap has a thumb lock (or tongue lock or tuck lock) closure with a handle at the top for carrying. You can replace it with a twist lock if you prefer.

I’ve found a mistake!

This pattern does have some known errors.

Incorrect cutting information on some paper patterns: Please follow cutting out guide on first page of booklet. The errors are as follows: 1 – Pattern Piece D Flap: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer, cut 1 lining, cut 1 fusible fleece, cut 2 medium weight interfacing”; 2 – Pattern Piece G Back strap tunnel: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer or contrast, cut 1 medium weight interfacing”; 3 – Pattern Piece I Zip and slip pockets: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer, cut 2 lining, cut 3 medium weight interfacing”.
Paper Piece B Lining measurements: Some of the paper patterns have the measurements reversed on the cutting out page for Paper Piece B Lining. The correct measurements are 13″ x 12″ (33cm x 30cm). The paper pattern piece, label, and PDF patterns are all correct.
Material requirements: You may need 1 5/8yds (1.5m) of medium weight interfacing for this bag.

RECOMMENDED FABRICS: Please review the back of the pattern cover for recommended fabrics. Shop our selection of Cork Fabric or Faux Leather, for a designer finish. We also offer quality Interfacing and Stabilizers

Mrs H – The Studio Backpack – Paper Pattern

New from Sewing Patterns by Mrs H – The Studio Backpack! With a modern design and clean lines, The Studio Backpack would make a great work bag, school bag or everyday bag.

The Studio Backpack uses a lot of bag bling. The adjustable backpack straps are fixed to the Studio using strap tabs securely attached (and riveted for extra security!) to O-rings at the top of the bag.

Short strap handles also affixed through the O-rings give you another set of options for carrying your beautiful bag. Depending on the length you choose to make your strap handles, you could also carry The Studio on your shoulder, in the crook of your elbow, or as a tote in your hand – when you’re not wearing it as a backpack, of course!

No surprise – this design is packed with pockets! On the outside, two large slip pockets that are ideal for showing off fabric panels, or customising with embroidery, patchwork or a little extra bag bling. Inside, under a secure top zipper closure, there’s a lovely large central space, zipper pocket, and slip pockets.

Designed for adventurous beginner bagineers, The Studio Backpack bag sewing pattern includes a lot of different bagmaking skills, with comprehensive instructions to guide you through as you learn these useful techniques.

For more experienced bagineers, The Studio Backpack offers excellent opportunities for customisation. You could play with patchwork, quilting or embroidery with the large outer panels, experiment with different types of hardware, or even add (even more) pockets! If you’re new to adapting bag designs to fit your style, we recommend picking up a copy of Mrs H’s Complete Bag Making Masterclass
