The Felt Store has been presenting the Vessel Project of the DEC 321.02 Interior Decorating Class at the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. This post is part 2 of the project in collaboration with Professor Susan Schwartz and her students. This week we are excited to focus on a variety of creative backpacks, we hope you enjoy!

Kids love vibrant colours, and so do we! This adorable children’s backpack was inspired by Norma’s love for animals and her younger sister who is now going to be the coolest kid in school. Felt is an excellent material for children due to its natural fibres and soft touch. The felt used for this project is a durable Industrial Felt - dyed with kool-aid in order to achieve its fantastic colour. The backpack comes with a main compartment big enough to fit school supplies, plus adjustable straps and a front pouch perfect for stashing snacks. What a creative and fun backpack!

Materials Used:
Kool-aid for colour
Nylon Webbing
Plastic Buckles

The bag has been crafted with adjustable straps and a front buckle giving easy access to your daily essentials. The compact size of this bag makes it perfect for cycling through the city or weaving through crowded spaces. Overall this bag is well designed and functional, a great combination!
