Last summer I decided I didn't ant to buy my bookbag... I wanted to make my own!
Threadbanger had this really cool episode on how to fuse old plastic bags together to make a messenger bag. I took the idea of fusing the bags together and decided to make a regular, enviornmentally friendly, bookbag!
Everything on this bag was recycled. I had all the old plastic bags just lying around. The straps are cut out from an old pair of jeans. Then the zipper was cut off from my the backpack I had used the previous year.
The bags I used were from Best Buy, Charlotte Russe, Deb, Forever 21, target, Hobby Lobby, Carsons, and Kohls.
