And a drawstring backpack, because of its simple design, can be a great first
project for someone who’s just learning how to sew. It can be quick and easy to
make, plus when finished the new sewer will have something she’ll be able to
use on a regular basis.

And a brand new backpack can make a great back-to-school gift for a child (but for
safety reasons, don’t put your child’s name on the outside of the backpack).

And if your backpack is going to be used to carry heavy items (like books), use a
heavier fabric for durability. But if you have your heart set on a lighter-weight fabric
(perhaps because you love the print), you can add sturdiness to the fabric either by
doubling it, by adding a lining to the backpack, or by backing the fabric with fusible
interfacing. And you may also want to choose a backpack design that has wider
straps, which will probably be more comfortable to carry than a drawstring backpack
would be.

And when sewing your backpack, remember to switch to a larger, thicker needle
when sewing through several layers of heavy fabric (like when attaching the straps
to your pack).
