I've got some gorgeous eye candy for you today, some of my testers' bags for the Bookbag Backpack!
I think I must definitely have the most talented testers in the world, have a look at what they've created...
First up is Amy from Virginia Girl Design. I love the bright cheery colours on her bag, and check out that pattern matching on the front pocket! Amy sells her creations, so if you're interested in a custom Bookbag, please do get in touch with her via her Etsy store.
Ana Cristina who used this really pretty trim to enhance her fabric. Ana also sells her makes, so if you like her style, give her a shout on her facebook page.
Messy Rooms. Her matching is so good I couldn't even spot the front pocket for a while! Anna is another seller, so if you love the look of this bag pop over to her Facebook page.
Diana who took her bag for a late summer jaunt to take these pics. I love the pop of yellow piping, Diana's got great style!
For my little monster. She's changed the wide front pocket into a zipped pocket and will be back later in the week to show you how it's done!
Love Rubie. Instead of one long double zipper Leslie's used two to get the same effect and I love seeing the bag modelled. Great work Leslie! Leslie also sells her handmade bags, so if you love her style, pop over to her Facebook page and send a message through.
Crazy 'bout Quilts is up next with her incredible pattern matching on the front pocket, way to go Sandie! Sandie left off the back straps, but liked the look of the back strap support so added that back in. She's also taken a really helpful photo of the lining (middle) which shows all the seams are hidden and there's no binding needed. There's also no hand stitching aside from the turning gap (which I usually machine closed). Thanks for showing that Sandie!
Sapta Handprints. I love how she's used both fabrics with a pop of orange for some great contrast. Way to go Sridevi!
A Creative Princess. Terri's bag is so fresh and bright it makes me want to go off on holiday! I love Terri's patchwork lining fabric too, it's a pop of fun hidden inside!
If you've been inspired by any of the testers bags here today and want to make your own, the Bookbag Backpack is available to buy on Craftsy and Etsy.
What will you make yours from?
