pocket pack

In pretend land, dolls need backpacks for all their goodies, too!  The packs are made from the pockets of wornout pants, adding straps, top loop & perky contrast fabric on the underside.

Fabrics with edges not prone to raveling work great – ribbon, felt, ultra-suede – for all straps.  Turn under the edges of underside fabric, pin into place.  Next, position & pin all straps into place then sew all around the edges.  Half zig-zag & half blanket stitch made the backpack shown.
