Meg's backpack is an ideal combination of durability and style. Threading the straps through a loop at centre back means that the zipper is protected and your valuables are perfectly safe whilst the bag is being worn. The slip stitch pattern in Guernsey yarn creates a firm and stable fabric to stop stretching.
