Pattern Description:

This INTERMEDIATE pattern is a satisfying project ~ professional in its results, through and through. Large enough to be used every day, yet small enough to be worn comfortably. Savannah is as much purse as backpack, with the convenience of being worn over both shoulders or carried by its handle. Two zippered pockets, adjustable shoulder straps, roomy interior.

For folks, like myself, that have issues with bag straps slipping off their shoulder ~ you will greatly appreciate the design of Savannah. Its sleek design is that of a purse, but is only one swing away from the convenience of a hands free backpack.

Savannah straps meet in the middle on top. NO sliding straps that are difficult to keep on your shoulders.

Large zippered inside pocket with easy installation instructions as well as a wonderfully large vertical exterior pocket that is hidden against your back when wearing as a backpack.

Perfectly sized “grab and go” handle give it that “purse” function plus adjustable straps for wearing as a backpack so you can go “hands free”.

The pattern is fully illustrated, with over 70 color photographs and very detailed instructions, including tips for options.

In addition to the pattern, CloBird Designs has a very active Facebook Group that is always there to help and cheer you along the way.

Reviews/Comments:

“The Savannah is large enough to carry anything I need yet still has a compact enough feeling to not be overwhelming. I like that the designer is calling it a “backpack purse” because that is the perfect description. I don’t feel like I’m grabbing a big ole backpack when I pick my Savannah up and head out the door. The feeling is natural and comfortable to carry. I love the compact shape of Savannah.” ~ Marlys

“Savannah is a pattern that will become an instant favourite… you will be creating not 1 but 2 or maybe more… The easy to follow written instructions and photo’s help your journey to complete Savannah to perfection.. give her a go, she is loads of fun!!” ~ Susie

“Savannah is an easy-to-follow pattern that results in a professional looking bag. I absolutely love this pattern and will definitely make it again. There are plenty of figures and pointers throughout the pattern so that even a beginning bag maker can tackle this bag and gain skills and confidence along the way. I’m so pleased with the way my Savannah turned out and will be using it for travel.” ~ Crystal

“Savannah is the perfect size backpack purse. Whether you carry it by the handle, over both shoulders, or slung over just one shoulder; she is super comfy to carry and hold. I like to carry her over one shoulder as a purse, and out the door I go for every day wear. Yet, having the versatility to wear as a backpack while at the park, craft show, or whilst shopping is a great hands free option (you know those times when you NEED a purse but don’t WANT to carry one)”. ~Beth

“Savannah is a little bag that can hold it all! She’s definitely not too difficult to tackle, and she will hold everything you need for an outing to get groceries, or more sewing supplies! This bag can easily hold your wallet (Fiona, of course!) planner, notebook, pens/pencils, lip gloss, etc. She even has a “hidden” zipper pocket on the back to securely hold all of your important items! She’s a great bag, and fun to make in bright, summer colors ready for the pool or store!” ~Brinkley

“Savannah: I give you 5 out of 5 stars!
Easy to follow pattern with tons of pictures that leave you with no questions. Every detail is covered so that anyone that can follow directions and sew a straight line can make a bag that is not only great looking, but also comfortable and FUNCTIONAL!
