I have been asked a lot if I make a backpack. I have made a couple but none this big and with so many pockets. I didn't use a pattern because I want to make it my own style. I made this one for my second oldest daughter Jillian. She helped pick out the fabrics. I love what she chose.
She wanted it to take with her on her trip to SPAIN! That's right, she is 16 and she is going to Spain for 10 days with her high school. She is going to have a wonderful time. We have been busy getting a passport, saving money, and deciding what to bring for clothes. Her great aunt sent her some Euros to take with her and that was so cool, she was thrilled.
The pocket on the other side fits a water bottle perfectly. I put four pockets on the inside too.
I had the zipper, I love when that happens. The pipping is made with a pretty metallic circle fabric.
I satin stitched the outside pocket with a beautiful variegated thread. I quilted the pocket with the same thread.
