Mamma Bear Convertible Backpack - Waxed Canvas Drawstring Bag
This bag is handmade in 5 - 8 business days
Sweater knitters rejoice! We've made a supersized version of our beloved waxed canvas bag! The mama bear offers more flexibility and a whole lot of storage without compromising on aesthetics or durability.
Waxed canvas makes up the main body of this bag, which has such a lovely character as it makes craze marks with the folds and crinkles in the fabric. Waxed canvas is an incredibly durable material, and with a little care will look beautiful for a very VERY long time. It's completely water resistant (I dunked it in a river to make sure). This makes it a safe choice for carrying around your precious projects, the bag and all it's priceless cargo will not be damaged by accidents or weather.
The exterior has three exterior pockets, the center pocket (12.5 x 5.25") with a printed lining and a snap button closure, as well as two side pockets (2.75 x 5.25").
The inside is made of sturdy 12oz canvas, and holds it's shape while your working. It has eight different pockets (12.5", 4x 2.75", 2x 1.5", 6.5") there is ample storage for notebooks, paper, pens, scissors and anything else your heart desires to carry along. The largest inner pocket (12.5") is large enough for folded patters, and has three eyelets for separating colour work.
The top is printed and has eight grommets where the bag folds in on itself for the drawstring closure. Two leather loops with D-rings on either side are where the strap attaches for a tote bag or crossbody configuration. The strap is (58") at it's longest, and is adjustable in length.
To convert the bag into a backpack (yes, it can do that!), thread the strap through the back leather attachment and secure the strap buckles to the bottom d-rings.
The bag is approximately 12.5" wide, 5.5" deep, and 14.5" tall (inner bag height before drawstring is 10.5").
The red, grey, and field tan models come with silver hardware, the black bag comes with all gold hardware to match the print.
***Quick note regarding the waxed canvas, as seen in the photo it will develop craze marks where it's been crinkled and folded, as well as where it has been folded during packaging. These can be removed by using a hair dryer (not a heat gun) and a soft clean brush. It can be cleaned by wiping it down with a soft cloth. For further instructions, there will be videos uploaded on my instagram :)
