hi, bag boards! this is not so much a purse as it is a backpack, but it got me lots of compliments at school, i thought i'd show it off!

at the beginning of this year, someone outsourced ordering a backpack to my father (even though i was willing to sew one up for a lot less money... whatever, mom...). bad choice number one. he got me an ll bean backpack with a pattern so far away from my usual style and so visually displeasing to me that i had to cover it up. i tried paint, no dice, embroidery, no dice, applique, no dice. finally i broke out the mod podge and a bad fantasy novel (you can see something else i made with that book on my profile) and decoupaged it up!

the whole thing took about a week of drying time. i was trying to make it very hard and dingproof, so i did many, many coats of mod podge and book pages. i loooooove how it turned out, and it was an easy and fun thing to do! highly recommend this method.

now, images!
















thanks for looking, comments and criticisms encouraged!

wow that looks fantastic!  I would not have thought you could decoupage a backpack.

thank you! decoupaging a backpack takes a LOT of patience (and about a quarter of a jar of mod podge), but it worked really well! next time i plan on sewing down the edges, because the peeled up and cracked a little.
