My daughter has a little Disney rolling backpack. the front was made out of flimsy plastic material over cloth as is common in kids bags. The bag itself is like new but the front plastic/cloth pocket part got ripped so is now ruined. I don't want to throw it away. Any ideas of another purpose for it or how I could fix it to make it useable in some way again?

You could mod podge some images onto it. Supposedly, there is an "outdoor" mod podge, which would probably be better for something that might go out in the rain.

Is the front pocket totally disfunctional, or just the picture is ruined? If it's just the picture, carefully rip it out with a box cutter or craft knife and hot glue something else in its place. Do a test to make sure the glue will stick to the bag. Some of that plastic/nylon stuff just won't stick to anything, it will just dry and peel off.

Mod Podges, no matter what the scenario, will get sticky in warm weather. Put in the sun for 1/2 hour everything floating around out there will get stuck to it.
