How totally gorgeous is this heart backpack? As soon as we saw it we knew it would inspire a whole collection of cute DIY backpacks just perfect for back to school!

This heart backpack looks like something you’d spend a lot of money on at the store, but it’s totally DIY and the best bit is that the lovely Abby is giving the pattern away for free over on her blog!

The bag is fully lined and has adjustable straps, and would make a super cute purse as well as a backpack for a little one just off to Kindergarten!
