Backpack bag can be easy and quick to sew. This drawstring backpack takes only about 30 minutes to sew. Sew a couples of them to use as activity bag for kids to bring out, be it for games, art & craft class, music class or tuition. It is great as laundry bag, shoes pouch etc…. Add embellishments to customize each bag to it’s specific usage or activity.
I used thin nylon/polyester fabric I bought from a Japanese Dollar store, Daiso, exactly the same material I used to sew the Strawberry Reusable Grocery Bag (pattern & tutorial). You may use other similar fabric like cotton and coated fabric if you can’t find the exact one. The size is 12 1/2″ x 17 1/2″, you can easily change the size you want to sew a smaller (lunch bag) or a bigger one.
Since it is so quick to sew, you can easily sew many to giveaway to other kids as souvenir or goody pack. I am thinking of making a few goody bags to giveaway during my son’s birthday, with the name of his classmates on the bag and lots of treats inside.
My kids love the drawstring backpack to bit and can’t wait to put their weekend enhancement class materials into it. Here they are, proudly carrying the Mama’s handmade drawstring backpack to the class.
