A couple of weeks ago the great Easy Peasy Backpack was the item of the day. It may have taken me 2 weeks to try it but I've now made 4 of them in 5 days.
The blue with pink bag was made following the instructions with only one exception. The instructions call for the drawstring to be tied in a knot and I sewed the ends together. It took roughly an hour and a half to make it (with no interruptions).
I then made another for me in a dark print that I have been hording for years. I ended up using the trimmings for simple interior pockets. That bag, that I made for me walked out the door with a friend the next day. She saw it hanging on the back of the chair after the photo shoot.
Tied knots this time, knots seem to go well with the cord.
Again used the trimmed off pieces to make pockets.
I will, no doubt, make these again. I think they would make a great gift bag and I have plenty of time left before Christmas not to mention the Christmas yardage in my stash. ;)
