A friend of mine asked me to make her backpack, like the ones I make for children, for running errands around town. I wasn't sure what I'd make until I saw this fabric at the store last weekend. I think (hope) it's perfect for her.
It's a drawstring backpack but instead of the string I've used twill tape which will make it more comfortable. I added a deep front pocket and the whole bag is lined. It's nice a roomy and the lining gives it substance so it won't flop all over the place while she is trying to stash her shopping in it.
I hope she likes it!
