Wonder how to sew a drawstring backpack? Adaline is here to help! Without doubt, after you have finished watching this video, you will feel comfortable making this super simple backpack using 4 fat quarter pieces of fabric in the colors of your choice. Make it as a gift and use fabric that your loved one would enjoy like this baseball fabric that we used in this project.  We have a HUGE selection of fat quarters and bolt fabrics at both our stores, so come in to see what theme you’d like for your new project!

4 fat quarters (2 for the lining, and 2 for the outside). Make sure to wash, dry and iron your fabric before starting. Then cut your pieces down to 16″ x 17″.
Ruler and rotary cutter
4 yards of paracord
A lighter to seal the ends of the cord
Thread, sewing machine & pins
Ironing board & iron
