Drawstring Backpack

Last week, our 13 year old twin girls went to camp, with other teens from our church, in the mountains of North Carolina.  They had a GREAT time and did I mention that they were gone the WHOLE week!  Yep.  So my husband and I were able to get away and go kayaking on a lake and shop in some of our favorite little mountain towns.

Here are some pictures from our day kayaking at Julian Price Lake near Blowing Rock, NC.

I needed a new drawstring backpack to take on our travels mainly because I don't even have one to call all my own!  We have some laying around the house that we got for free over the years but I wanted needed a pretty one.

I bought this peacock fabric a while ago from Joann Fabrics with a gift card that my favorite father in-law gave me for Christmas and decided that this was the right time to use it.

This bag is lined and was really easy to make.  It would make a GREAT project to make with your older child/teen this summer or make some and add them to your Operation Christmas Child Boxes later this year.

Here is the link to the PATTERN on Craftsy that I used.  If are not a member of Craftsy, it is a great website with lots of free patterns for all types of projects! If you decide to make one, I would love to see pictures!
