Sewing A Secret Pocket Inside Your Backpack:

This method is a little handy job and you may require some basic sewing knowledge so that you can efficiently sew a new secret pocket inside your backpack. However, if you don’t wanna go for this one, you can try the clipping method or use some pins. But this one always turns out better and provides great versatility. 

Things that you'll be needed
  • A Sewing pin for sewing the fabric inside your backpack 
  • A matching thread for sewing the fabric 
  • A piece of fine and matching color fabric same as with your backpack
  • Using Duct tape for cleaning up the lines
  • A pair of scissors for cutting the exact piece of fabric
  • Measuring tape for measuring the cloth that you wanna use for creating a secret pocket 

However, if you don’t wanna use sewing needles, you can use pins too for attaching them inside your backpack. 


  • Specifying the place–First of all, turn your backpack inside out. Choose a place where you wanna create a new secret pocket inside it. It must be that place where only you will be able to reach right? I know you might wanna create it hidden somewhere. 
  • Using Measuring tape–Now take the fabric and measure it according to your desire with the help of a measuring tape. But as far as you are going to create a pocket, so the piece of fabric must be of the same size as any regular pocket. 
  • Using the Fabric—it’s time to take a fabric that must match with the color of the cloth of your backpack. While measuring it, take a little bit more amount of fabric from the corners as it will help you in sewing it easily. But you can cut down the extra edges with the help of scissors after sewing it.
  • Needle and Thread–After this, place the fabric at your chosen place. Hold it there, or pin it with some pins as it must be strictly attached to its place. Now use a needle and put a thread into it. You might face difficulty while putting thread into the smaller hole of the pocket but I know that you can do this. Don’t you? But the thread must also be of the same color as your backpack or chosen fabric.
  • Sewing–Once you have done it, start sewing the pocket from one corner. Although in this process, you may stab yourself more than once, believe me, there won’t be too much blood. But you must take care of yourself, buddy. Keep sewing it and sew its 3 sides, left one side open so you can use it as your secret pocket for getting and placing things into it. Plus keep in mind which side of the fabric will be way up as you have to flip the backpack while sewing it. 
  • Using the Duct Tape–Now it is the turn of duct tape. But before using it, keep in mind that it must be of the same color as your fabric and backpack. Use the tape to clean up the job. Take a little amount of it and place it over the sewing sides, thread and edges. The sewing won’t be visible and you’ll have a completely hidden pocket inside your backpack. This will also make the secret pocket safe and secure.
Once you’ve done all this process, you are good to go. Now you can keep your secret stuff in this secret pocket and can go anywhere with your backpack.
