No Purse Needed With This DIY Bandana Backpack

If you are going on an outing and wish to be hands-free, how about a cute bandana backpack to contain your belongings?  It’s a “cinch” to make 😉

Sometimes, we don’t need to carry a big purse with a lot of stuff.  I’m thinking about those casual days at farmer’s markets, yard sales, outdoor festivals.  And then there’s the kids.  Couldn’t they use something to hold a bottle of water, some tissues and extra sunscreen or hat?

Just grab a couple of bandanas and in a few minutes at the sewing machine, you can whip one of these string bags up as a convenient carry-all.



The Kim Six Fix is here to show us how it’s done.  We are thinking these would be a great gift idea.  Or make some in coordinating colors for siblings or a small team.  So many possibilities!




Here’s your materials list to make this adorable Bandana Backpack:

  • Two bandanas
  • 1/2 yard of fabric for the lining
  • 4 yards of paracord for the drawstring
  • Two 3/8″ grommets
  • A grommet setting tool (can be found at your local fabric shop)
