Smart Travel with ZipN'Travel Backpack


The Magic Bag! I'm Small yet Mighty is back!
From SnapN'Go series to ZipN'Travel now.

SnapN'Go Duffle Bag and Xpandable SnapN'Go Tote Bag patterns were well-received, and many members requested for a Backpack in the similar style.

I had a slip disc injury during my younger days. This has influenced my backpack preferences. I cannot carry a structured backpack for long without feeling the strain on my slipped disc. This ZipN'Travel Backpack has no structure and amazingly, perfect for my back! I wore it during my recent vacation and came back with no back aches.

With the ZipN'Travel Backpack, you can easily fold your backpack into the built-in zipper pouch. Yes, including the padded backpack straps.

ZipN'Travel Backpack is designed for both young children and adults in mind.  There are TWO backpack straps length included in the pattern. D ring hooks, a perfect addition for hikers and travelers, can also be added to the straps.



ZipN'Travel Backpack is fully lined with pockets galore for better organization.  You can also jazz it up with different fabric bases to turn it into a Normal Backpack.  3 different methods of finishing the backpack - serger, binding and birthing can be used.  The pattern instructions use the birthing method through the Panel Linings and close the opening through the Zipper Pocket Linings.
