BACK(PACK) TO SCHOOL: 2 DIYs With Call It Spring

 
As we all know, backpacks are practical for a multitude of reasons. For one, they make riding a bike easy and breezy (because LOOK MA, NO HANDZ!), and secondly, they carry pretty much everything – from your morning/midday/afternoon/evening snacks to an extra pair of shoes (for when yr platforms start hurting yr feet). Honestly, the list could go on and on, but if it did, there would probably be no time for the actual purpose of this post – which is to provide you with !!TWO!! backpack DIYs for you to replicate on your very own Call It Spring backpacks! Ya gurlz, we got your back(pack)s.

A poem [following the AABB rhyming scheme because that’s all I know how to do):

This is a two part crafty collective
This is – dare I say it? – a back to school incentive.
In conjunction with our friends at Call It Spring,
We’ve DIY-ed some bags so you can impress your ting ;)
By starting off with a needle and thread,
These bags were once plain – but now they’re fancy instead.
Sewing and threading,
Gluing and embedding,
You’ll be the chicest gal at school,
Who will be sure to let everyone know that backpacks are cool.

Bye (4 realsies).

 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Call It Spring backpack

STEP 1:
Thread the needle and tie a knot at the end

Push the needle and thread through the inside of the backpack at any random spot

To create funky flower shapes, push the needle and thread through the inside of the backpack directly beside an existing bead
