This Slouchy DIY Backpack is the perfect bag for everyday use. The rope straps and burlap-esque material give it a casual summertime vibe, but it's so handy you'll want to use it year-round! This easy bag pattern is sturdy enough to carry all your errand essentials, yet cute enough to take on a lunch date. As an added bonus, the muted colors will match anything and everything in your closet. This tutorial is easy to follow, but if you'd like a challenge, it would be easy to alter the instructions to create the bag from a repurposed burlap sack.
