For most of last term, I was lugging my university books around in a shoulder bag that just didn't suit academia - it was cute, but definitely not built to handle the battering of books which it received. Over my brief vacation at home, I decided that it was a better idea to invest in a backpack - but instead of finding one I liked only to meet someone else with one identical, I opted, as usual, for a DIY.
While the lovely Annika was moving house this week, I provided a guest post for her blog on how to make your very own map backpack.
I've received loads of compliments on it already, and I've only been back for a week, so I'm incredibly happy with how this turned out!
I'd love to see your version if you try out this DIY.
