Quilted Backpack Pattern

Quilting, Sewing Patterns

:: Beautiful Back to School project! :: This Quilted Backpack Pattern is for a sophisticated girl: it has ribbons & buttons, has contrast front cover, is covered with flowers ~ in one word: is cutter than a button.

I love this sweet quilted backpack and just know that thousands of young girls would love their mom to make this for them. (And can imagine moms making 4 of these simultaneously as they want one for them selves, one for their best friends and then have some to give a way as presents later on in the year…)

This backpack seems a bit sturdier than the usual one with just a drawstring thanks to both the quilting and its construction.

Tip: I’d also use off-white for lining and minor other details, so that the colors will pop.
