how to make backpack
In this backpack can carry or store any items.
Iron on Adhesive
Handful of Pins
Bend the fabric and sew along. Leave a small hole at the top. This is necessary so that you could then insert the cord.
Sew zigzag stitch the top and bottom.
On both the front and back piece, measure 2 ½” from the top of the raw side and mark with a pen. Fold down ½ inch, press another 2” to meet that pen mark you made.
Press and sew close to the edge of this seam. Repeat on the back piece. You’ve just made the loops that the cording will slide through to cinch the pack closed.
All you have left to do is thread the cording! Attach a safety pin to the rope. Start on the right side, on the top piece, and thread it towards the left until the rope comes out of the left top piece. Then thread it through the back piece starting at the left side and ending on the right side of the back piece.
Both ends of your first piece of cording should now hang out of the right side like so. Even them out and tie both pieces together at the end with a knot or insert clips.
Do the same with the second piece of cording but starting on the opposite side. Both ends of this second piece of cording should now end up on the left side as shown.
Turn the bag inside out one more time. Unpick a couple stitches in both of those bottom corners. Put both knotted cords inside the bag and pull them each through the corner on the same side.
Sew a zigzag stitch diagonally to hold the cord in place. Reinforce several times. Repeat with the second corner.
Turn your bag right side out.
