The Raspberry Rucksack is fully lined in the main compartment and in the front popup pocket. The wide opening of the main compartment offers great functionality and easy packing and access to items in the bottom of the bag. It comes in two sizes, Little Raspberry and Big Raspberry. The Little Raspberry is a perfect mini size for day trips or for an everyday bag. The Big Raspberry is a great size for a school book bag, gym bag, or work bag.

There’s nothing like sporting a rucksack you made all by yourself! Each step of the process is broken down into bite sized actions. The pattern instructions include detailed illustrations to help you easily navigate through each step.
