"Learn how to upcycle a t-shirt into a backpack. This is a great beginner sewing project to make a simple backpack! Little kids love backpacks. They love carrying around their special items and feeling so grown up. My son loves feeling like daddy with a backpack or like he’s going off to school like a big kid. It’s so fun to see them carrying around their toys and books. And here’s a sewing tutorial to make the simplest, easiest backpack ever from an adult tee! Just imagine all the logos you could have on your backpack because you reused a t-shirt!"
