I love the Sew, Mama, Sew! Blog. I have found many great tutorials on the site and I wanted to post my own version of the drawstring backpack.
Here is the link to the tutorial. I love it because it is super easy and is so customizable. Backpack Tutorial
I followed the instructions as they were, the only thing i changed was the flap. The top flap was supposed to be a 7 inch square. I used a Fiesta cereal/soup bowl to make a 7 inch circle. I appliqued the eyes and the mouth onto the circle before construction. For the whites of the eyes, I traced a larger thread spool and for the black I traced a small thread spool.
For the inside, I created two pockets. One was a small ID pocket and an elastic pocket for sippy cups.
I hope you all enjoy and take time to adjust tutorials to express your creativity.
