You don't need a lot of fabric to make a kids drawstring backpack, it's the perfect excuse to use those fat quarters that you have laying. Simply combine it with some heavier weight cotton and there you go! Follow the easy step to step photo tutorial to make your perfect kids drawstring backpack. "
