Making Backpacks

Making Backpacks

On several occasions, former Bubbler Artist-In-Residence, Bird Ross, went out into the community to work with Bubbler Teens in a series of sewing workshops. Backpacks are a easy and useful object to make. Who wouldn't rather pick out your own fabric to make a personalized bage versus just choosing what is on the shelf at the store?

One teen loved two designs so much that she asked Bird Ross to teach her how to create a reversible backpack.
