Introducing: Back At Ya 2.1

We are pleased to announce our new and improved Back At Ya 2.1. Watch the video below for a quick intro to this stylish travel-friendly backpack from Annie herself. To see more of what Annie has to say about the Back At Ya 2.1, watch our Closer Look video!

What's New in the Back At Ya 2.1

Versatile Sizing

The Back At Ya 2.1 is the perfect compact backpack for day-trips or an easy carry-on for flights. With adjustable straps you can customize how you wear it to fit to your needs.

In this new 2.1 version, we made some minor adjustments to the shoulder strap lengths and instructions.

This backpack is a wonderful gift idea for back-to-school in the new semester, or for a professional-looking bag to give a stylish young adult.

Stay Organized with Mesh or Fabric Pockets

This pattern features a magnetic flap on the front pocket, a full zippered quilted pocket on the back, and a zippered mesh pocket inside.

The Back At Ya 2.1's spacious interior has a variety of slip pockets for easy access to your phone, keys, and more.

With all this space you can stay organized and prepared for anything!

Hardware and Supplies

Have you ever worked with our magnets? With the Back At Ya 2.1, you will secure the front pocket with a nifty magnet snap.

Choose from our antique brass, black, or nickel hardware to add a sophisticated and professional look to your bag.

You will also have the opportunity to create an interior mesh pocket! Never worked with mesh before? Fear not! Annie has created a step-by-step process for working with mesh!

The Back At Ya 2.1 also uses our wonderful Soft and Stable™ to add stability and life to your bag.

Add-on Video

The Back At Ya 2.1 pattern comes with a $5 coupon to access its Add-on Video. If you have already purchased an older version of Back At Ya (2.0), you will still benefit by purchasing the 2.1 Add-on Video.

The Add-on Video will not teach you all the steps of the pattern, but will cover the hardest parts of the project.

In the Add-on Video, Annie will give a project overview as well as how to:

  • Prepare the front flap
  • Prepare side strip
  • Adjust the shape of the zipper strip
  • Adjust shape of backpack front
  • Assemble the straps
