Have any of you used Lazy Girl's Chelsea Tote pattern? What did you
think? Or have you made a backpack from another pattern? If so, what was
the pattern? I like using a backpack. I have a nice one from LL Bean,
but would also like something that's not quite so rugged looking for
some occasions.

I have made the Chelsea a few times. In fact I am teaching it on
Monday. <G>
My great-nephew got one for last Christmas and he liked it enough to
say he was going to carry it on his trip to visit his dad. <VBG>
(Which I consider high praise from a 10 year old.)
You do need a good needle, I recommend a denim size 14 or 16 for the
construction because there are some pretty thick seams.
Since you choose the fabric, this can be a really versatile pattern.
Can be a bit "girly" or very masculine in tone. I like the way the
strap is zippered to that it can be a one-shoulder sling bag, or a
back pack style.

Have fun,
Pati, in Phx

I found this one later:
<http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4118.htm?search=m4118&page=1> or
<http://tinyurl.com/medulv>. I like the outside pockets. McCall patterns
are on sale for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby next week. I think I may have to
go up there & get it.

Terrific pattern that features four basic bags. It encourages me to make a
run to Joanne Fabrics. Thanks, Julia.

Another interesting looking backpack pattern. One of the people in my
guild made the Bellino bag and has taught a class for it. The pattern is
at <http://www.ghees.com/html/handbag_patterns.html>
