Drawstring Backpacks for the Kiddos

This weekend our family is headed out into the Wilderness to live off the land...
In other words, we are going camping (at a campground with electricity, plumbing, and a heated swimming pool)  Hey, we're Tenting It, so it's gonna be rough ;)

Since I already know we are going to have a long conversation about why we can't take every toy we own along with us, I thought the kids could have a choice to fill one bag with whatever toys they want to bring.

My intention was to have a tutorial for you, but I was just lucky to get these made with my sanity intact and the children still alive.  :)  
Here's a good tutorial that is similar to the method I used, though.

 What's great about having three very active kids is a trip to the store is much more daunting than just using what you have around the house.  It's a TRUE money saver!

Georgia's is the smallest one, and I used some silver cording as the drawstring:
Cashton's practicing for a future of pat-downs apparently...and I used double-folded bias tape sewn together for his drawstring:
And Sam is proudly sporting Pink on PINK with some pink braided ribbon trim as her drawstring:

A little fabric Painted Name Badge on each to finish them off, 
and we have TOY CONFINEMENT!
