The Eyes zipper open and shut and there are four button-close pockets on the sides. The entire pack is lined.
I searched things like "skull" "kitty" "back pack" "punk" and a number of other related terms on etsy... went shopping for fabric at JoAnn's with my friend, took some inspiration from the world around me...bought the wrong zipper, bought the right zipper... and had a ball, and tried to take lots of pictures.
If you love this piece but are more interested in purchasing a finished project than you are pursuing the task, please contact me thru etsy to place a Custom order. Thank you for viewing and happy handiworking!
Step 1: Read though EVERYTHING
Step 2: Gather materials!
You will need:
Two fabrics - either from the bolt or in the form of large, recyclable clothing (I like to go "fabric shopping" at the goodwill). One fabric will serve as the outside and one should be tough to withstand the wear and tear of being the inside of a backpack...I have used canvas in the past. I like the Plaid fabric because it seemed resilient.
two 7" zippers of your style and color choice
one 24" zipper of your style and color choice
four D-rings, fairly large
four buttons of your style and color choice
scissors - both thread cutters and shears
possibly a seam ripper
(everything but small scissors, pen/sharpie and seam ripper pictured)
