Mav Pack Paper Pattern By Linds Handmade Designs
Mav Printed Paper Pattern
You will receive a printed version of this pattern with full pattern pieces, detailed pictures, and step by step instructions on how to make your own Mav pack. It will come in a resealable plastic bag and convenient hanging hole. There is even a full-length how-to video on Linds Handmade Designs YouTube channel, showing you how to make this bag from start to finish if you need any additional support.
Skill Level: This is an intermediate pattern in that it uses advanced bag making techniques that require the sewer to have a general familiarity with bag making. It requires accurate cutting/sewing and installing a curved zipper which can be challenging for new sewers. This bag is "turned" through an opening left in the pocket which gives the bag a nice snug, finished lining so there is NO binding involved.
Finished Dimensions: The finished pack is approximately 6” wide by 7 1/2” tall and is 2 1/2” deep. The shoulder strap is cut to 56” long (cut into 2 pieces) and fully adjustable. It features 1 interior zipper pocket.

Are the vinyls, jelly and TPU domestic machine friendly?
On each listing we provide how thick these vinyls approximately will be. They can work on most domestic machines, with the correct feet we recommend a teflon or walking foot on your sewing machine. You may need to adjust your tension on the machine. We also recommend using a bulky seam aid / hump jumper which we sell here
Canvas Cotton-Linen Fabrics
Fabrics which are woven from natural fibres have characteristics and other irregularities in the yarns which are features and not therefore treated as weaving faults.
Custom Printed Bases:
We use a combination of stock images from manufacturers and our own photographs. We have tried our best to represent the colours as accurately as possible. However, we can't guarantee an exact match to the fabrics shown as colours vary on different screens and devices. Therefore fabrics may look different upon arrival. When ordering custom printed fabric, please understand it could vary slightly on different fabric bases vs digital images.
We try to use eco friendly mail bags and cardboard boxes. The packaging we use to post your orders is mostly fully recyclable or compostable and we encourage you reuse the packaging your Little Stitcher Sews order arrives in.
