Skirt to Backpack


I got some dark gray cotton canvas for the lining, but first I had to make some pockets on the lining, then I did pockets on both sides to ensure there would be enough space for my phone, keys, and various small items. There will never be a bag with too many pockets for me because I will need every pocket to organize my little essentials.
Here it is, looking at this! A sparkling, textured and a backpack from a shirt skirt is finished, for more refashion projects, please click here to view more!

Super pretty! I agree a backpack can't have too many pockets but it's frustrating when you can't remember which pocket you used. ;) Great job.
