PDF Pattern - The Dragon Sling Backpack

(6 reviews) Write a Review

Need a quick sew that looks like it took hours? This is the bag for you! The Dragon Sling Backpack is the perfect little backpack pattern that holds a whole bunch! It features a front pocket (with optional pocket cover flap), an optional back slip pocket, and a zipper on the side gusset that leads into the inside of the bag. Wear it cross-body, or one-shouldered, it's up to you! So many ways to have fun with this dragon!

Measures 11" W - 17" H - 6" D, and can be made from all sorts of fabrics. Have fun with your picks, and make sure to post pictures in my Facebook group!

    Super easy

    The directions at first kinda threw me off a little but besides that once I read through it and worked out the bumps it was super easy
    I tested out the pattern difficulty for a friend of mine who’s a beginner at sewing and I’m excited to teach her how to make this bag!

    The directions were clear and concise as I've come to love about XOXO's patterns. There's plenty of storage space which makes it different (and more practical) than many other sling bags I've made. The shape is a bit challenging especially lining up the "strap anchor thingy" for top stitching but I think even a confident beginner could tame this dragon ;) Oh, and almost as rare as a dragon sighting, my kid actually complimented my bag and asked for one of their own!

    This bag is so cute and it was an easy to follow pattern. Very well explained with photos to guide me along. The only problem I had was using vinyl which my machine hated. But I got it done and I will be using it!!! Lots of room and I love the side zipper!

    Lauren has done it again!!! This pattern is one of the easiest I have ever done, but has the professional look of something that would be designed for a far more advanced sewer. With varied options to tweak her to your preferred style, the instructions are so well thought out that I kept assuming I was missing something! Superfabulous!!!

    I've made a few other backpacks before, but this one is absolute perfection! I'll definitely be making loads more!
