Ladybug backpack with Side Zipper

This is an idea that I have had for a while running in the back of my mind. Finally I drew it out and made one. I love it!! The side zipper is wonderful for get things in and out of my backpack quickly. There is also a back zipper pocket and two interior slip pockets. I hope to write the pattern soon and have two sizes, large and small. My daughter immediately wanted one when she saw this bag but I think she would need it to be smaller since she is only 5. I am also going to add a cute zipper pull tutorial to go along with this backpack!! So start to watch the shop for this new pattern available soon!

What a neat back pack. Very creative. I love it.

I love this back pack, as well as all your Ladybug patterns. How would it work with a top zipper? I'm afraid I'd open the pack and have everything fall out. How big is the pack?

The Ladybug back pack is pretty roomy and inside there are two upright slip pockets. There is also a nice zipper pull tutorial to go along with this pattern and that helps with the opening and closing of the bag. Putting the zipper on top of the back pack effects this bag a lot in this case because the straps are on top of the back pack:) I am using this back pack now and I love it!!! The zipper pull actually really makes it all work, I can't wait to show you!!! Thank you for your questions and comments!!!
