DIY Shirt Backpack


After spotting “the coolest backpack that [they had] ever seen” on the street one day, Ali and Amy of Salute to Cute set out to recreate a backpack that looked like it was made from a shirt with this terrific shirt backpack tutorial.

This tutorial ingeniously utilizes just one collared shirt, and a piece of rope to use for a drawstring, to create the entire backpack. So if you’ve got an extra collared shirt lying around and you happen to need a backpack, then just grab some scissors and get out your sewing machine and get to work!
