I love Hello Kitty, I have since I was about 5. And I thought it would be fun to figure out a way to make a DIY HELLO KITTY BACKPACK!
This is a bag for all ages of fun-loving, Hello Kitty fans, from 1-10! It's easy, fast, and people will be in awe at your creative skills, when they ask where you got it, and you say: I MADE IT!
So here's how to take a plain ol' backpack and turn it into this, adorable, super cute and happy backpack of awesomeness:
WHAT YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HELLO KITTY CRAFTING ON:
WHITE JANSPORT BACKPACK EBAGS
#2. DECOFABRIC PENS in Black and Yellow- I got mine at Michael's Crafts but you can get them online here:
DECOFABRIC PENS (I tried it with some other fabric pens and a Sharpie pen I had, but they both bled the ink really badly, the Deco Pens didn't do that at all)
#3. RED RIBBON BOW- Celebrate It Red Ribbon (I got it at Michael's Crafts on the Ribbon Aisle)
#4. A seam-ripper or screw (to remove the "Jansport label")
#6. The tag from the backpack to use for the center of the bow
#7. A juice bottle cap or anything round to use to trace
#8. A Pen
#9. A Nickel or and coin to use to mark the width of the eyes
#10. Safety Pins: 1 big one and 2 small ones
Now come hang out with me for a few minutes and I'll show you how I made this!

Huge hugs and Hello Kitty-ness, your virtual BFF, Kandee
