A few days before school was going to start, my 9 year old daughter started asking me to buy her a new backpack. I told her that her backpack was fine, there wasn't anything wrong with it. She insisted and started whining about it.
We have a motto at our house some of you may have heard of it:
Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without!
She wasn't buyin' it. I told her, ok I will add some cute stuff to your backpack, like cute fabric or something. She picked out some fabric from my stash, and I went to work. Here is what I came up with. It isn't anything too fantastic, but she was VERY excited about it!
I started with sewing on the ruffles, but the backpack was SO hard to manuver on my sewing machine that I decided to hot glue the fabric on. I don't know how long it will last, but for now Savannah is one happy camper!
Have a great weekend!
