Between Designing, working and mending (ergh) I have found the time to make a bag for a dear friend!
Instead of doing a simple bag i had to choose (with my friends help) a back pack. This one lives up to it’s name summit!
It’s not a hard sew really just such a climb to the finish line.
The prep, and amount of pattern pieces…

If you haven’t realised by now i am all about making quick projects! This is not a quick sew project. But it was so enjoyable to make a new very well designed pattern.
The Summit pack by Cloudsplitter bags looks so professional when finished people will be amazed you made it yourself. I’ve see it made leather and so many fabric combinations and it always looks amazing.
The Summit pattern is very well written and easy to follow. It has a cut out chart to tell you how many pieces you need of each pattern piece with interfacing and foam instructions too.
for this bag i used Quilting cotton, chambray (Denim look linen), Medium Vilene Fusible interfacing and Vilene style-vil.
The Style-vil was a dream to work with again. I am so happy with the professional results. I fused the foam to the pattern pieces as with heat and bond just like in my tutorial.
My favourite part of the bag is the strap, i know it’s weird but the stitching is so perfect. I actually stopped sewing the pattern for a while at that point just to admire my work!
The trickiest parts are of course the zips. Using a Double zip is so much fun though. I love sewing with them!
I learnt from this pattern that even if your nervous give patterns a go. It’s going to turn out well if you try your best and take your time.
I really recommend this pattern for anyone who wants a bit of a challenge and a professional finish bag.
