Claim your right to roam with this fine rucksack on your back. M&M recommend making it in traditional British oilskin or sturdy canvas. We at BLA would love to see it made using raw denim! Fully lined with 3 divided internal pockets. The pattern includes a cross-body bag as an alternative.
Hardware for this pattern is sold separately as a kit. The kit contains both metal and leather parts needed for the bag.
Pattern Errata: Pattern piece 10 (handle): The gap between the rivet holes should be 6cm on each side. It is currently 5cm on one side and 6cm on the other.
This is an intermediate pattern.

M&M recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. Pre-washing also ensures you remove any further fabric shrinkage (most fabric manufacturers state 3-5% additional shrinkage, or for our denims it will be approximately 2.5cm in the length only).
We recommend doing the following to avoid creasing, and to prevent shrinkage after making:
