Back-to-School Backpacks You Can Make Yourself!

Help your kiddos start the new school year off right with a brand-new backpack you can make yourself! 

A DIY backpack makes back-to-school more fun. Instead of generic store-bought brands, let your little ones help select fabrics that excite them to learn and show off their personality — and your crafting skills! 

By's Got Your Back 2.1 backpack is the perfect size — it's big enough to tote their books and supplies but small enough to fit their frame. It features a quick grab padded handle and adjustable straps, as well as a magnetic flap on the front pocket, a full zippered quilted pocket on the back, a zippered mesh pocket inside, and inner slip pockets to help keep everything organized.  

Knot and Thread's Violet Packback is just what the teacher ordered for your youngest back-to-schoolers! Its compact size provides a comfortable fit, and its exterior and interior pockets will help you help them find what they need. The straps are adjustable, and the pack can be made larger for older kids (or adults!). 

Look no further than the Noodhead Firefly tote for middle or high schoolers. While technically a tote and not a backpack, it features zippered pockets and a super useful drawstring top closure to help ensure what goes into their bag stays in their bag until they take it out! It's available in two sizes — the smaller size makes a great lunch tote! 

With only weeks to go before the school bell rings, it's time to get sewing! Visit us online or in our shop to find fabric so fun your kids will be begging to go back (to school)!
