Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!
Today I am here to show you how to craft a lightweight summer backpack from cotton fabric. For this project you will need one yard of material for the bag and a small cut of scrap fabric which measures 4″ x 10″ for the hang tab / closure + 44″ of 1.25″ cotton strap webbing.
To begin, precut 4 rectangles from your cotton material that measure 18″ wide by 21″ tall. Plus the hang tab which measures 4″ x 10″.
I will be back next week with an Insulated Bottle Tote Tutorial. Until then, please know the creative genius in me salutes the creative genius in you!
