Who doesn't love a sturdy little customized and personalized backpack?! (They're padded enough to safely tote electronics too!)

Great Christmas (and birthday!) gifts, they're also cute as can be for wedding party keepsakes and shower gifts. They're awesome "just because" gifts for kids and best friends and hey, why not get one for you, too? :)

These are envelope style "purse" or "child" -sized backpacks -- they are about 12" tall when closed, and measure about 8.5" to 9" across. Straps can be adjusted, and the overall strap length can be customized to meet your needs. There's a hang loop, and a velcro closure for the flap. The backpack front is quilted and padded, the back is padded. Batting and padding will not shift even after many years of use! It is fully lined with no raw exposed seams anywhere. It is machine washable, lay flat or machine dry, and can be ironed if desired. If there are special care instructions for your particular backpack, you will be advised accordingly.

You will be ordering a custom made backpack which will be created especially for you with the personalizations and customizations of your choosing. Let me know what primary fabric color(s) you like, and what kind of design(s) you have in mind and I'll do the rest! Remember to include the name or monogram you'd like stitched on the flap of the backpack if you want it personalized. Toss your ideas at me and we'll create a one of a kind keepsake that's sure to delight. It's a gift that will be cherished and talked about for years to come!

Here's some ideas to get you thinking -- Perhaps you (or your recipient!) really like owls. Or frogs. Or cats, dogs, birds or furry lambs. Maybe a fairy, pixie or an angel. Pick a posie or a pretty tree. A stack of books. Maybe an owl reading a book. Like lemurs? Want a stack of 'em? (Speaking of stacks -- pick an animal, I probably have it and if I don't have it stacked, I can put 'em in a horizontal row for you!!) Like Dragons or dinosaurs? What about a cross? An om. The star of David. Your zodiac sign, a yin yang (tao) symbol. Want to dress it up with lace or an organza overlay? Want it sparkly and loaded with glitter? It's all up to you!

***The sky is the limit -- but your vertical height is limited to about 5" or else it will be hidden under the flap!***

Let your imagination run wild and order one for everyone on your gift list!

Your custom backpack will be completed within seven business days from time of purchase *and* following finalization of design details. Photos of fabric choices can be had for the asking! Speaking of photos -- You will receive a set of photos of your backpack before it ships, as well as a photo or two along the way to let you peek and stay updated on the progress. :)

Your order will be shipped to you in a heavy duty mailer via USPS first class mail. Priority shipping required for heavy (over 13 ounce) multiple item orders.

The dragons in a heart shape symbolize so many emotions for me and the coloring is perfect. The black bag just brings out the colors in the dragons even more. The strings change color depending on how the light hits them. Being that I am the year of the dragon and the struggles I have with Love this bag will bring many happy memories as I look at it and inside it for the treasures it will hold!! Just beautiful!!

Absolutely beautiful! Well made & just lovely. The detail is beautiful. Seller kept me in touch with the process once it was started up until it was finished & shipped. I love dragons & use small bags like this to carry certain pieces of jewelry in, so this is perfect!!! Thanks again so much! Take care.

I was super excited to receive these personalized cup sleeves! Kathleen did an AMAZING job designing each one and picking out the perfect embellishments to complement the individual themes. I’m thrilled with the quality and cannot wait to present them to my friends! The price was great and shipping was fast! The only problem I have now is trying to figure out what to order next! I will definitely be a repeat customer!

This was made for my celtic rings and it holds them perfectly. Just the right size and with the design I asked for. Perfect not only for me but if you had a gift in mind. Better than a paper gift bag that gets thrown away. You can put a trinket or a small gift in this and give it to a friend also. Just perfect and very well crafted!!
