Hi there, I haven't posted anything in AGES!! So I've been making lots of bags for myself & friends lately, and had been dying to try to make a backpack FOREVER (it is my bag of choice, after all). Basically, I just kind of winged it & used a backpack I already had as a sort of guide. I used an old sweatshirt for the shoulder straps, a zipper from a sweatshirt, and scraps from other projects for everything else! I added a bottle-holder-pocket & 2 zippered pockets 'cause I have lots of stuff to carry, ya know!! To anyone attempting to do something like this, it can seem daunting at first but it is totally do-able (it only took me about 5 hours!) sans pattern.

Very nice!!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
