This Instructable will show you how to make your very own El Wire Backpack!

This is perfect for your bike at night, or just showing off to your friends.

This is also a perfect project for beginners at sewing and with El Wire.

I thought about getting some green el wire and adding it to the right and left sides so that
you could have a turn signal system.
