Yes indeed it can worn as backpack or as shoulder bag, whichever way you prefer. My sister wanted a bag of this sort and gave me the specifications.

Straps which can be worn as backpack and also may be transformed as supportive straps to be worn as shoulder bag. Straps have been strenghtened by using webbing inside the fabric.

The bag has a slit pocket in the front and the lining has a zipper pocket and an open pocket. There is also a mesh water bottle pocket at the sides of the bag.

The bag has a magnetic snap as well as drawstring closure made out of crochet rope.

I really liked this bag and should say is the most professional looking i have ever made. The material was from one of the sarees i did not like wearing, infact had never worn it so decided to use it for bags n dresses my little daughter. The outer body of the bag has been strengthened by using non-fusible sew-in thick canvas, since the saree was paper silk and hence very delicate.

The bag has already been used by my sister for the past 2 days at her office.

I love straps that can be worn more than one way!  And I love lots of pockets, too!  This bag is wonderful.  Cheesy  The texture and color of the fabric is lovely, and the print is adorable.  And I really like all the details you included, such as the piping and the crocheted drawstring with beads.  It is a lovely bag, and such a nice thing to do for your sister!

Very pretty!  Your wonderful taste in fabric never fails to delight me, and the design is both clever and totally practical.  Can I be your sister for awhile please?

Thanks for such wonderful comments and i am glad as well surprised that you  had noted down minute details like crochet rope beads and piping at the bottom and so on... which i had not even posted in the description

My sister loves the bag as well. Thanks for such magnanimous compliments on my taste of design and fabrics. Regarding you being my sister, you are most welcome unless ofcourse my sister (real) doesn't have any qualms about it  Smiley.

Wow!! The fabric is amazing, just beautiful.  I love the bag design, and the strap for the shoulder or as a backpack very clever.

I love this bag!  I really like bags that are convertible like that...I have wanted to make one for quite some time, but just can't understand the logic behind the design!!!  You did a great job!  And gorgeous fabric choice as well!

Thanks for sharing!
