diy: polka dot bag ...

My cute little three year old Norah is headed back to pre-school this fall, and we were on the look-out for a cute little backpack for her to bring to class.  We looked all over, and all we could find were princess backpacks, and the like.  I was hoping for something a bit more simple for her, with some good design.

So, we came across a darling plain denim backpack at Hobby Lobby, and I knew it would be perfect after we spruced it up with a few easy polka dots using fabric paint!

The process was very easy, and in no time, we had a darling little backpack for her to wear on her first day of pre-school!  I'm loving the denim and polka dot trends right now, and combined! Well, how cute is that?
You can try your hand at dressing up a simple bag, with my full tutorial I am sharing over on hellobee.
Now, I for one, can't believe it's already back to school time?!  It's killing me!  But, we'll still be sure to soak up the last bits of summer over here!  I hope yours has been fabulous!

I love this! Our wee one (at 15 months) isn't quite old enough for a backpack yet, but I might just have to make one for myself!

what a sweet idea to upgrade a backpack! and I love that the dots don't look like they're painted over, they look really good actually!
