This listing is for PDF pattern to make the backpack, not the actual backpack!

I have been asked many times if I could make a bigger version of the famous Limulus backpack (see the catalog), and finally I designed the Cumulus: this design is not just good looking but also very practical. I like to have a back pocket to put my phone in it, and also I usually wear the backpack on one shoulder - the design of the Cumulus allows me to get in the backpack without taking it off, no matter which shoulder you like to wear it on! Very handy :)

And besides that, it is a total head turner!

Size, approximately: 14.5" x 13.5" x 2.5"

You will need around 7 square feet of leather to make this backpack. 5 oz veg or chrome, medium to firm hand, for the body. 3-4 oz for the zipper trim and logo patch. 6-7 oz for the straps. Hardware: 2 x 13” zippers (the length of the zipper opening is 12.4”) 1 x 8.5“ zipper (the length of the back zipper opening is 8.15”) 4 x button studs Tools: Scissors, knife (paper knife or rotary cutter would also work). Stitching irons: my pattern is made for 5mm stitching irons (5 stitches per inch). If you are willing to use any other size please make sure that the hole count is the same where it has to be the same. Needles - according to your thread size, a pair of harness needles. Mallet, rivet setter, snap setter, hole punch, 1” bag punch (oblong).
