A practical day pack designed by Francli Craftwear. Play with hardy fabrics and unique M&M hardware to create a bespoke pack for everyday life and adventures further afield. With water bottle pockets and internal laptop pocket.

All seam allowances are 1cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - intermediate.

This PDF pattern is made up of 3 A0 page and 48 A4 pages.

Fabric Suggestions - oilskin, dry oilskin, mid-heavy weight cotton canvas or drill, mid weight denim (8-14oz).

There are 3 different fabric parts to the bag, the contrast (bottom and back piece), the lining and the main fabric of the bag. You can go a little heavier for the contrast fabric as you’ll be putting this down on the floor potentially and the back piece will have wear and tear against your back!

All of our fabrics can be used for the main body of the bag, but we would only recommend using our ‘Expedition Oilskin’ as the contrast as it is very heavy and you would struggle on a domestic machine to use this everywhere. For the lining the Barrier Lining is a good choice as it has a water repellent finish. For more information on how we used our wadding see our blog post.

We have put together a kit of all the hardware you will need to make this bag which can be found here.

To add a final flurry to your Day Pack we have created some leather patches which can be found here.

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF, you are purchasing a digital file which will be stored on your account to be downloaded at any time. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer and stuck together and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. Alternatively, you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK, we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.
