School is almost done for the year but this would be a great bag for carrying items to summer activities this summer. This is a very bright and cheerful looking backpack and I see the designer has stated she completed this backpack in as little as three hours. I can make one for both kids, in different colors of course. Thanks for the free pattern.

I need one of these for those quick errands that I am always on the run for. I am forever putting my things down and leaving them. This way, I will never leave my phone or keys again, they will be on my back. What a bright color bag.

I'm not sure that anyone could create this Bright Stripes Backpack without smiling all the way through! It's such cheery colors and a fun design too! This would be absolutely perfect at the beach, at school, in the car or even to lighten up some stuffy board meetings! The only thing I might do a bit differently is to add some width to the straps because I'm afraid the thinness of these might hurt my sensitive shoulders. Oh my, I just looked to see what yarn choices there would be...deciding which one to use could be the hardest part!
