Earlier this summer I made myself a simple drawstring backpack for carrying my goggles, sweatshirt and hat to the pool each morning. A simple backpack with a twist.
The twist is the hidden pocket that you can see at the bottom of the photo above. I tuck my phone in that pocket and keeps it nice and safe.
Here's a view of the hidden pocket during construction.
A tutorial for the drawstring backpack will be featured during the Elm Street Quilts Bag It event - complete with grommet installation!
What is Elm Street Quilts Bag It?
This blog event will kick off Monday September 12 with a week long introduction to all the fabulous sponsors.
Then, the tutorial begin - weeks and weeks of new tutorials of all different kind of bags.
The best part?
Making a bag during the event - from my tutorial, some else's tutorial or from a pattern etc - earns you participant entries towards the giveaways.
If you needed incentive to get some handmade holiday gifts made, this is it!
You can read more about the overall event on the information page.
I'd love your help in building a listing of great bag tutorials.
Link up your bag tutorial from your blog - doesn't matter when the blog post went live as long as it contains a link to this tutorial page so people can find other bag tutorials.
New tutorials shared in a blog post September 1 through November 15 which contain a reference to Elm Street Quilts Bag It linky party, will earn you an entry into the overall entry bucket.
And I'll be searching for featured bloggers during Bag It from all those who enter a tutorial into the linky.
I'll be linking my finish with Fabric Frenzy Friday, Finish it Up Friday, Finished or Not Friday, Sew Cute Tuesdays, , Freemotion by the River, WIP Wednesday's, Let's Bee Social, and Midweek Makers.
Have a wonderful day! Patty
