Is this ever a popular pattern! It was first released by Alicia Miller, who is the owner and designer of Swoon Sewing Patterns, as a limited release, but by popular demand she is now offering it as permanent release. I did not purchase it originally, but jumped to buy it when it was re-released.

The Denver Backpack pattern offers two sizes. The larger size has a very spacious interior, but what I love the most are the very generous outer zippered pockets; one on each side of the bag.

Each of these pockets holds a ton of items! The smaller version is great when you want to travel a little lighter and has the same great outer zippered pockets.

I put together a step by step YouTube tutorial constructing the Swoon Denver Backpack with just a few minor variations. There are time stamps for each section of the video which you will find on YouTube in the description below the video so you can feel free to skip around and fast forward as you wish.

If you would like to make the Denver Backpack and sew along with me, you can purchase the pattern using my following affiliate link. If you do choose to use this link, I do make a small commission, but it is at no extra cost to you.

The opinions, text and pictures in this post are my own.

Happy sewing,
