I have a friend who LOVES Star Wars and I ran across 3 Star Wars shirts at the thrift store for super cheap, and decided to make her a bag from one, and just gift her the other two for wear/crafting. I just taught her how to crochet(correction, a friend of mine taught her how to chain, I taught her how to single crochet, and the basics of reading a pattern) recently and now she LOVES that too! So I made her a WIP bag. She rides her bike to crochet/knitting night, so I figured it had better be a backpack.

I was kindve bummed, and hope she doesnt mind, but I didnt notice how high up the graphic was, so I ended up sewing through his head a little bit.
 Sad (I stuffed the bag with yarn and a crochet book, so I think shell forgive me)  Wink




I used this tutorial I found online http://justfacs.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Drawstring-Backpack-Project.pdf the only things I changed were I used a t-shirt instead, and I used parachute cord because that was all I could find at Michaels, and didnt feel like driving to Joanns for regular cord.  My husband did melt the cord ends for me so the knot wont slip out though.
