HoodyPack BackPack

The Happy #HoodyPack

For the basic backpack, I used Simplicity Pattern #1388 View A 

I drafted the hoody using the main fabric and a piece of vintage leather I had laying around in my denim and leather stash box.  

It took me 3 tries to attach the hoody because I kept putting it on backwards!!!! LOL!!! Luckily I basted it on instead of using a permanent stitch.  I did not use the D-Rings because my son wanted the pack to "hang-low." 

The fabric is a woven jacquard fro Jo-Ann's.  I used 2 different prints. I love the black and white Aztec look of the fabric.  It's apparel fabric but is heavy enough to make a backpack.

The other print is out of stock but here is a similar print:
