I decided to make another drawstring backpack to donate to the silent auction at the big fundraiser dinner for the jazz bands my daughter is in. I wasn't going to do red satin again though LOL!
texture-striped black, just enough to do the outer bag. I had this fun musical instrument fabric, but it wasn't quite enough for the inside. I also had some black twill--not really enough for the entire bag either. I've really been using up fabric lately!! So, I pieced the black twill onto the bottom of the instrument fabric--very pleased with myself for remembering to add the seam allowance to each piece to make it the right length. I placed the pocket so one side is in the side seam and one side was sewn down. However, due to the elastic around the top, it kind of pulls the side of the inner bag inwards. I think from now on, the water bottle pocket goes dead centre. Either inside or outside.
