This past weekend was a 3 day intensive class on the Adventure Time Backpack. This busy workshop was held at Voodoo Rabbit Fabric in Brisbane, Australia, and boy did the ladies have a blast! This class not only taught them how to create an incredible backpack, but taught them amazing skills to use in future projects as well! Let’s take a look at their fantastic makes and see just what they learned!

This super colourful backpack was made by Lesley. Her colour choices are incredible and it all looks so fun together! You’ll never have to worry about it getting lost!
Megan from Ink Soul Creations made this Alexander Henry-themed backpack. That red piping really makes the roses and corset pop off the fabric!
Megan also included a Custom Andrie Adornment from Voodoo Rabbit Fabric. The logo goes with this bag perfectly!
One of the greatest things you’ll learn while creating this backpack is how to insert piping. For a few of these ladies, it was their very first time! To get beautiful piping just like on these bags, check out the PDF Piping Tutorial for tips and also the YouTube videos as well.
This Dr. Who themed bag was created by Tam. She did an incredible job matching up all the blues on this bag and I love her use of the silver zippers!
Kathleen made this beautiful soft cream and red backpack. These fabrics really make it look classy!
This dark and camo themed backpack was created by Robyn of Kicky Threads. Her little one was beyond excited to receive this guy!
Jacqui created this bright blue and green backpack. For her exterior fabrics, she coated them in Odicoat to give it a waterproof finish. It will certainly stand the test of time! If you want to have a go at Odicoat Glue Gel, have a look at my review on YouTube to see how it works!
I am SO proud of these fabulous creations! I had an absolute blast seeing them all come together over the weekend and really enjoyed getting to meet the ladies and share more than a few giggles together as well. It’s truly inspiring to see projects like this come together so perfectly!
