made this backpack out of a grey pillow case and white/grey striped fabric.
I dont even know why I made it! just felt like it one day. Im not even a backpack kind of person. And it was meant to be bigger. since i though it would be good for when my bag is heavy to not wreck my one shoulder! but it turned out a bit smaller, sort of rendering it pointless. oh well. it is pretty cute though.
I sewed a patch pocket on the front. trimmed the flap with stripy fabric. it has a little loop also made out of the stripy fabric to attach to the green button. the bag is lined with the stripy fabric. i put button holes along the top, then threaded the straps through it as a drawstring. it also allows the straps to be adjustable. and i realised i dont even need to untie the knot to get things out since it just open out when not being worn.
i guess ill try it out and see if i like backpacks. they just feel weird!
maybe ill sell it! if anyone likes it a lot id love to sell it!
I did not use a pattern just my super skilzzzzzzz.
