Sometimes you want to be casual and handsfree but still, look smart. Backpacks can have too much of a casual look, can be overly big and bulky, too much going on, too many pockets – it can be much more than you need and doesn’t always feel pretty or feminine. The Promise Ring Backpack by Sew Sweetness is a beautiful compromise between functional and pretty, without being overly large.
The backpack features the following:-
- Solid accents to make your feature fabric pop!
- The straps are adjustable and clipped to the sides of the backpack.
- A flap with a magnetic snap closure keeps your belongings safe.
- There is a zippered pocket in the lining to store your cell phone.
The designer says “I designed this as a small purse-style backpack that would allow you to be out and about this summer while being hands-free, but it also makes an adorable child’s backpack!”
When you have finished making your own Promise Ring Backpack it will measure approximately 9-1/2″ wide by 11-1/2″ tall by 5-1/2″ deep.
