Happy Friday everyone! My name is Jessica and I am guest blogging today. A big thank you to Kari for giving me this opportunity :) Just a quick bit about myself: I have a craft blog called Happy Together (come stop by for weekly tutorials and other inspirations!) and run an Etsy shop (also called Happy Together). I am a stay at home mom to my little girl who just turned 2. My husband is in the Coast Guard, so I'm a military wife as well. We are in Florida right now and the heat is killing me, but I'm finding lots of things to do.
Today I want to share with you a quick tutorial just in time for school (well, some may have already started, but it's never too late!).
And this is what I came up with to imitate it:
I made it in two ways. The pink one is with flower petals and for the yellow one, I cut out the petals from fabric. I must say, I wish I had found a drawstring bag before making these, but alas, my schedule did not permit me. I think they came out cute though and my daughter loved them. She's already told me she wants to go to school. Too bad she has to wait a little bit on that one ;).
This is a great option for revamping a child's old backpack, especially if you are trying to save some money. The child could even do it themselves! And of course, you could do this on a purse as well. How cool would it look with petals cut out of all the pretty fabric scraps you have?
So now onto the tutorial.
-A back pack to spruce up
-Hot Glue Gun
-Fabric (amount depends on size of bag; I used a regular and a sheer type)
-Hot Glue Gun
-Backpack to revamp
1. You will need to cut out the petals from the fabric. I did mine on a piece of fabric that was about 2x3 inches.
Cut around the top petal template through all the layers at one time.
