Bellaclip Backpack Pattern

Sewing Pattern Only • PDF File for Download • Not a Physical Product


Bellaclip is a fun and functional backpack with several unique safety and user-friendly features.

Outside, there are 3 overlay options to choose from: folded edge, raw edge, or an overlay with a slim, hidden zippered pocket. The instructions show how to sew this on a flatbed machine, where you have limited access due to tight spaces. I reduced bulk everywhere possible to make this bag easy to put together on any type of sewing machine.

Highly Recommend!
“I love this bag! I made one right before my recent vacation – 3 hours later, I had the perfect bag for comfortably wandering around a city. The instructions are clear, especially as there is a “”non-standard”” order for assembling the bag, with the double pouches. Highly recommend!”
Great Carry-On!
Such a unique construction, and the final product is so classy. I used this as a carry-on recently, and it all fit easily.
Amazing Pattern
I can’t recommend it enough! This pattern is amazing, not only did it use techniques you hardly ever see but the bag itself is big and roomy it’s become my go to bag for baseball games. I can get my water bottle, tablet, sunglasses, blanket ear buds, wallet, and my keys inside of it. It has these amazing straps with clips that I can use to keep it closed.
Such a fun sew!
After sewing the Briamar Pouch, I immediately went and bought all of Bumbleroot Designs patterns. The writing style is clear and concise, however my favorite thing is the unique way these patterns are designed. I would have never dreamed up the unique techniques featured in this pattern!
The perfect straps
For a free pattern this is so useful for any bag you make and so many variations
The Cocoon Method
A real game changer in adding a zip with no tabs!
I purchased this bundle during a sale and it was worth every penny. I’ve made the double and the triple so far. It’s so nice not to have to birth a wallet or use binding. Great method for sewing this up.
The Gena
I love this design. Learned new techniques. I love how you mix and match the pouch and exterior and have a new purse every day.
Two bags in one!
The removable centre pouch is such a great idea! I love that I can mix and match for a completely new look (I made 2 different centre pouches!) or leave the pouch out when I need a little extra room. The designer has also included some fab new techniques, the classy strap connectors, the perfect fit lining, and how to sew a hidden slip pocket. You always learn something new with a Bumbleroot pattern. I know I do!
Perfect sized tote
I love the Big Rock tote, such a great size for me, with the added bonus of opening up bigger if I need it. It makes a great overnight bag too! The design is so cool, and just shows you don’t need loads of hardware to add bling, just a great design.
