:: 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.

Choosing Patchwork or Quilting Fabric
You can see that choosing great fabrics is more than half the work. So, I decided to do a bit of homework for you, making things easy. I have a few sets of gorgeous quilting fabrics here for you to choose from:
Forest themed quilting fabrics – Fat Quarters
Aubliss 8pcs Fat Quarter Fabric Bundles 100% Cotton 19.6” x 19.6”(50cm x 50cm)
Bird themed quilting fabrics by Riley Blake
Teresa Kogut Stitchy Birds 10″ Stacker 42 10-inch Squares Layer Cake Riley Blake Designs
I also like this orange-tinted quilting fabrics set (learn more or purchase on Amazon)
Tip: I’d also use off-white for lining and minor other details, so that the colors will pop.
