Upcycled Backpack

TECH 235 – Materials and Processes

Materials and Processes Final Project: Sew a backpack made from upcycled materials. The backpack is made from Wrangler denim jeans and a suede blazer from the local Goodwill. 

Black thread is used for stitching to create a cohesive look that matches the zipper and straps. A denim pocket is featured on the front of the backpack with belt loops that have been sewn into an “X” shape for anything that the user desires to clip to the front of the backpack. Two other pockets are located on either side of the backpack using the maroon suede fabric.
