My eight year old has taken to sewing in a huge way and we were talking about stuff to do related to hiking and camping.


Has anyone seen a pattern for hipbelt pockets, (with zipper),  for a backpack?  It would thrill her to no end to know that Daddy has his map, compass and Cliff bar in reach thanks to her efforts.

I've never seen a pattern, but a bit of advice...

Have the zippers open to the front (close to back). My GoLite zippers are the opposite, and they open when twigs grab the zipper.

It is an excellent project and marketable, if she is so inclined.
I love hipbelt pockets and only use backpacks that have them.

I don't have a pattern, but I have a favorite when it comes to hip belt pockets.  Love the design and size -- but not sure if it's too much for a young sewer just getting into the hobby...
