I take this backpack / purse hiking with me all the time and its lasted much longer than any of my backpacks, so I thought I'd show you how to make one!
It's very simple, and took me less than 20 minutes to make. If you've got an old bag lying around, it might be worth the small experiment to see if it could work as your new backpack. Check out how it's done!
Step 1: Materials
A satchel / purse
A bit of extra fabric (Old belt? Old backpack strap? Piece of left over jean?)
A needle and thread
A pair of scissors
Two Fold-Back clips (smaller is better)
A candle (optional)
