How to Make an oversized book bag
Forget about spending too much money at a retail store for a new bookbag when you can make your own! Go back to school in style - your own personalized style - by making your very own purse to carry your books in. Use fabrics & accessories to customize your book bag to fit your style. Materials you will need to complete this bookbag include:
- 1 1/4 yards each of two sturdy fabrics (canvas, denim, poplin, courdory). One fabric will be for the outside, the other for the lining.
- Needle/thread or sewing machine
- Metal grommets
- Measuring tape & yard stick (straight edge)
- Long paper (butcher paper, wrapping paper)
- Fabric pins
