Fili and Lino show how to make this cute backpack out of an old pair of jeans. The denim makes a sturdy fabric for the backpack. It’s fully lined with a contrasting cotton print, and it has adjustable straps. A drawstring cinches the top, and is covered with a flap with a button and loop closure. Go to Fili and Lino for the tutorial.
