I can't believe that school will be starting soon here. I have a few things on my list to get done before that happens. I need to make some scrubs for my oldest, new messenger bags for my boys, and I've managed to get a backpack done for my youngest daughter (not a small feat with a little one trying to climb on any material I try to lay out!).
The backpack is made with drawstring straps, and has pockets on the inside for pencils and things. There is one pocket on the outside as well.
