The Bigger on the Inside Drawstring Backpack design takes your standard flat drawstring backpack and adds a large oval bottom to maximize how full you can stuff it! Bonus, this drawstring bag stands up while you rummage through it. And you can feel free to stuff the inside because the zip pocket on the outside is the perfect place to stash your phone and keys for security and easy access! As an in-between size, it works for adults and kids! While this is my perfect gym bag (my size 9 running shoes nest right in the bottom), I’ve been informed by my pattern testers that their kids and teens snatched these right up!
