The Nine Patch convertible backpack is a simple, stylish and functional backpack that is perfect for your daily adventures from running errands, work/school, going out for a walk, etc. I love the convertible feature that allows you to switch from backpack to a shoulder bag at ease.
This is also a great project to use up some of your leftover charm packs or favorite scraps.
You can purchase some beautiful charm pack fabric collection from various designers here.
Finished bag measurements approx. 13" x 12" x 4"

I've got four delightful projects that are solely created to "cheer you up" this holiday season. These are great projects to use up your fabric scraps, remnants or any leftover fabrics that you have on hands.
Each project is pretty simple in constructions, with materials that you likely already have in your stash, hence there is no need to purchase additional items.
Since this is a festive season, I used some of my Christmas fabric stash, this is the "Scandinavian Christmas" collection from PBS fabrics that I got from Etsy.
Happy Sewing, and Happy Holiday.. cheers!!

UPDATE : THERE ARE SOME CORRECTIONS THAT I NEED TO NOTE DOWN FROM THE VIDEO
At 13: 47 , I stated that you need to trim the zipper to measure 11", please disregard, it should be 12" long instead
At 16:50 , I wrote to cut the strap anchors 3" long, please ignore that, the measurements should be 2.5" long, as stated on the cutting instructions.
At 20:02, I said to measure 3 and 1/4" from the edge of the fabric, it should've been 3/4" instead.
