Since 10 is one of my favorite numbers, I thought I would give a gift. A little tutorial on how to make a very very simple backpack. I needed to make one for Liz for her new scriptures, and I thought there might be some others out there who would like some new ideas.
Happy New Years!
1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric into 11" by 32" strips. My backpack was a little "big" for scriptures, so you could take off 5 or so inches if you like. 2. Put right sides facing, and sew along to top and bottom edges (these are the short edges). 3. Now turn right side out. Press. 4. Sew channels along the top and bottom with a 3/4" -1" seam. 5. Fold end to end (inside out) and pin sides. For bottom loops fold 4" cords in half; place inside the bottom corners, ends aligned with fabric edges. 6. Stitch sides (do not sew channels closed), make sure to secure the cords and right up to the channels seam. 7. Turn right side out. 8. For strap, thread an end of each drawstring through the loop below it and tie ends.
