I made the bag similar to this mustache backsac except I painted the dinosaur on a piece of fabric and pieced it into the front of the bag. I love making these bags because they are so simple and you can change it up depending on the person you are making it for.
I transferred my dino pattern onto a piece of orange fabric.
I used plain acrylic paints with textile medium added to make it permanent.
This is the finished painted piece.
I stitched two rows of trim under his feet.
You can refer to this backsac tutorial for details on bag construction.
After filling it with dinosaur books, colors and a few extra goodies he's all set!
Happy 3rd Birthday Joe!
