Range Backpack

I love bag patterns from Noodlehead.  I've made two Firefly Totes and one Sandhill Sling (so far!) and with a (hopefully, covid rates permitting) trip to QuiltCon next month, I wanted a new backpack and just finished making the Range Backpack.

The printed canvas fabric was sourced from Spoonflower.  The contrasting gray is RF Big Sur, left over from one of the other bags.  The lining is one of my all time favorite prints by Giucy Giuce.

The directions were easy to follow.  The pattern was also easy to modify.   I added a inset pocket on the back of the bag so I could keep my wallet or phone secure but also easily accessible.

I also added an inside zipper pocket by layering it on top of the drop in pocket in the pattern.

Finally, on the other side of the lining, I used some mesh to make two pockets, one of which is to keep my water bottle so it is standing up and easy to retrieve.

I took the assembly process slow and it was very enjoyable!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Fabulous bag!! Your modifications are ingenious. What was used for the stabilizing?

  2. Oh Patty, I absolutely love your bag and think the tweaks to the design you made are an excellent idea. I too love NoodleHead.

  3. She does have great patterns. Your backpack looks awesome! Well done.

  4. Patty, I absolutely LOVE everything about your Range Backpack! fabulous pallette you chose and it's so beautifully constructed. I know you'll enjoy it just as much as the Firefly Tote and more. I too love Anna'a bag patterns.

  5. Great back - love your extra additions. xo

  6. What a great design for a bag - and you've well and truly done it justice - beautiful!
