Fantastic! Thank you for the link to the zippers.

If you guys love target as much as I do, you will notice they are now selling backpacks that look kinda like this (monochromaticp, nylon material). Only they dont have awesome giant zippers and lots of useful pockets. Sometimes it irks me a bit to see something that would be easy to make in a store...

Great bag! The zipper is monstrous and awesome, I love it. What's the inside like? Just one big compartment? What kinds of fabric?

Can you tell I'm planning on making my own already? lol

amazing! i went down the handmade backpack route once, it was not a great success. those guys are hard! be careful with that big zipper, too, i had a storebought backpack that had one and it caught the webby part of my hand once, a few months ago, and i still have a mark!

That's awesome, and I have a handful of those Organization XIII zippers lying around I didn't know what to do with. They look so cool like that! I might have to use one...

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

That is wonderful!  I love the zipper and all the pockets are great!  The straps look great too.  I've been planning to make a book bag for my daughter who will start school this coming year.  I couldn't find a pattern for a bag like that to save my life.  Did you use a pattern, or just wing it?  I was starting to give up on the project, but you have given me incentive to at least try it.

Holy craaap. I'm having rage blackouts from jealousy of your backpack!

I have the same issue with retail backpacks, but I'm too scared to make one myself. I think, now, armed with a gigantic zipper, I have my new weekend project
