Patchwork Backpack by Sewspire

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

In today’s episode we are crafting the drawstring ties and completing the exterior of our patchwork backpack. For this portion of the project you will need two pieces of quilt weight cotton fabric which measure 3” x 20” and a quilted base panel which you will craft (just like the side panels) from ten of the 4” squares we precut in the first episode.

In tomorrow’s video we will begin to fashion the interior of the backpack. Please comment below and let me know if you would like to see how to incorporate:

1. a padded pocket for an iPad or Laptop
2. a three way divided slip pocket
3. a two way divided elasticized pocket
4. a small pocket for the phone
5. no pockets

Until then, the creative genius in me salutes the creative genius in you!
