Backpack 2.0

So functional fail on the first backpack, since it's too small for the folder that each student has to bring back and forth each day from home to school. So, start over, with a few adjustments. Upholstery fabric outer and poly-cotton lining from Joann, orange Vislon and special-order two-tab zippers, goldtone buckles and polka-dotted super-tough strapping from Pacific Trimming, and snaps from KAMsnaps.com; pink corduroy from another Garment District store I don't recall.

Back, with ergonomic curved padded straps.

grrr-tough strapping, with buckle adjustment.

She really likes it, and I'm pretty sure nobody else will mistake it for theirs. The previous one has found new life as her ballet bag.
