I came across this sweet fabric with ballet shoes to use as a lining for my drawstring bags, although several have requested it as the outer fabric. There is a limited quantity of it. Nevertheless, backpacks from Drawstrings are a great idea and can be managed from 2 years old and upward. The “grab and go” handle and the straps are made from strong grosgrain ribbon and are held together with metal brackets. I carry my knitting in one as it is easy to through over the shoulder!
