Description

Needed a backpack to bring too school. It got a bit heavy to bring all the books and the laptop with me in a shoulder bag so I made a back-pack in pleather!

Material Notes

2 buttons, pleather.

    I love your backpack! It’s way cooler than the backpacks I see in stores now. I’m wondering, did you use a special sewing machine needle and thread for sewing the pleather or did you sew as you usually would?

      Ah, thank you! I used it frequently until it broke and I’m in no business trying to mend stuff! Haha!

      I think I might have used a jeans needle, but the thread is the same. Might be a good idea to use something thicker though since the backpack couldn’t hold the pressure from my books! Haha!
