Linds Handmade – The Mav Pack Paper Pattern



With this purchase, you will receive a paper copy of this pattern sent to you in the mail with detailed pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own sling.  It includes full pattern pieces and will come in a resealable plastic bag with a vent hole and convenient hanging hole.

This is an intermediate pattern in that it uses advanced bag making techniques that require the sewer to have a general familiarity with bag making. It requires accurate cutting/sewing and installing a curved zipper which can be challenging for new sewers. This bag is “turned” through an opening left in the pocket which gives the bag a nice snug, finished lining so there is NO binding involved.

Specs: the finished pack is approximately 6” wide by 7 1/2” tall and is 2 1/2” deep. The shoulder strap is cut to 56” long (cut into 2 pieces) and fully adjustable.  It features 1 interior zipper pocket.
