The Dawn To Dusk backpack is very practical (and stylish!) bag with 5 pen pockets, a small coin pocket, and a front flap pocket with a zipper. There are 2 handy side pockets with magnetic snaps and the inside has a slip pocket with elastic that fits a small laptop. The straps are adjustable and the finished size is 14" X 13" x 6" (36cm x 33cm x 15cm). Because of all this backpack pattern special features, it is recommended for sewers with experience.
