Summit Pack Sewing Pattern Review

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 pack 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.

  1. I agree! This is a wonderful pattern and produces a quality bag. There are a lot pieces and the interfacing prep time is extensive but when it is finished you understand why you put so much time into it.

  2. Hi, i was wandering if there is a video tutorial for the summit pack?

  3. I disagree, the instructions on this pattern is very difficult and confusing I’m not a beginner sewer. I have made a lot of bags. Someone needs to do a video on the construction of this bag. I love the bag, I just wish the instructions were easier to follow and more pictures

  4. I have made one, and was intimidated by the skill level. That being said I found it very easy due to good instructions and fast to put together. I really want to try cork fabric for exterior for my next one.

  5. Hi, I’m fixing to tempted this bag I have made lots of bags but this one does look a little stressful, if someone would make a video on how to make this bag it would be great & sure appreciated,
