I decided this year's backpack had to be the most epic backpack ever. I mean, I'm a senior, go out with a bang, right? So, this is what sprouted with that idea in mind.




I probably spent about eight hours in total decorating this backpack. Six of which were spent on hand sewing the buttons alone. I added a candy plushie brooch, a unicorn fabric bow, a perler bead lollipop with flat back pearls, and a perler bead bunny with a bow. I made a few keychains; one out of embroidery floss, beads, and bells, another out of different color safety pins, and a third was a failed attempt at a friendship bracelet. (The Hello Kitty pez dispenser and Yoshi keychains weren't made by me, obv. Haha) I'm pretty proud of it. Smiley!



andddd, not rly related but, I also made this pouch out of a tshirt sleeve Cheesy!


"Don't be a betch" pouch made out of a t-shirt sleeve. (Thanks to this tutorial Cheesy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfk6EVoacZo )

I love the rainbow buttons, they're amazing.
Of course, how could rainbows + buttons equal anything BUT awesome?

'Don't Be A Betch'. I freaking love it. Smiley It's almost worth doing that in fabric paint on a shirt. Smiley -x-
