Backpack makeover

I know by now everyone is back in school, but I wanted to share what I did this weekend to personalize my daughter's backpack.

She started with a plain old Jansport backpack that I got at a garage sale for 50 cents. The color was nice, it was a great size, only problem was, is that it was just a little plain.



I happened to have some small coordinating fabric pieces that I knew matched the backpack so I set to work making yo yo flowers. They were really easy and I think they turned out super cute! It's also really versatile because I sewed pin closures on the backs of each of the flowers so she can move them around (or take them off) where ever she wants.

No more jansport logo
Isn't it cute?

A very happy looking make-over and you certainly can't beat fifty cents for a back pack.
