Here are two more backpacks that I made in the last 6 months... One is University of Florida Gator quilted drawstring backpack... like my Obama '08 backpack (see blog entitled: Obama '08... BACKPACK for more info).
The other backpack was made using a sewing pattern.. I used black twill to construct the backpack itself and then lined it using a really cool and funky dollar bill fabric! I thought it was more than appropriate for the 16 yr old boy who received this as a gift! I also made an applique iron on patch of the flag of the Dominican Republic which is where the teenage boy is from... and so is my family!
The black backpack has a zippered pocket on the front where the flag patch is and also 2 other pockets inside.. one is smaller and narrower to hold his cell phone or iPod and the other is wide enough to hold a wallet, etc.
