How adorable are these little drawstring back packs? They take no time at all to whip up and you will never run out of uses for them.

The only materials you need are:

  • 1 piece of fabric 84cm x 35cm folded in half
  • a 3 metre length of cord cut into two
  • a sewing machine and general sewing stuff is also required.

    Another great project from the Haby Goddess! My girls has so much stuff that they insist on carting around with them everywhere. This bags are a great idea for both packing things up and bringing them along. Plus they are probably old enough now to help me make them. Thanks.
