Truly there aren't many crafts that I haven't tried. Most I love and have done now and then throughout my life. Sewing is one of those crafts. I've always loved sewing. For me it's very satisfying to make things that I can use and most of the sewing projects that I have done I use a lot. I used to make quilts, pillows and stuffed animals for my kids when they were young. Lately my sewing machine has seen more paper than fabric but I decided to change that when I saw this cute little drawstring backpack pattern.
I made this backpack first. My lovely daughter , Alexis, is modeling it for me. It is really more of a child sized backpack so it looks a little small on her back. The drawstring is on the top and also forns the shoulder straps. There is a small zippered pocket on the front.
I had so much fun making the first one, I decided to make more in Auburn and Alabama colors. I have a couple of friends with daughters that will look so cute using their backpacks to carry their things to the football games.
Here is Kate showing off her Auburn backpack. As you can see the size of the backpack is much better on her.
I haven't yet delievered the Alabama one so Lexi is modeling it for me here.
I had so much fun with this little project I am planning on making more backpacks in various fabrics including the Auburn and Alabama colors and selling them in my Etsy store. If you are interested in having one of your own before I put them in my store or want something in specific colors please email me. I can also adjust the size to fit an adult if needed.
Thanks for sharing in my excitement. I'll be back soon with more styles soon.
