This One of a Kind backpack is inspired by the newer Doctor Who monster Daleks.
I made the bag in a "slouch sack" style out of scraps of gorgeous dark red cotton velveteen. (the color just didn't come across in the photos. it is So much brighter than it looks.) It is fully lined inside with an even more gorgeous red satin.

I used black satin for the spots and permanently ironed them on. For the Dalek "arms" I used black cotton cording with the plunger and other bits made out of sparkly black felt. I decided not to wire the arms for comfort in wear.
The top of the bag is black poly and closes with black cotton drawstrings. I used metallic silver trim around the top and a narrower silver cord on the black top part of its 'head".

I used a stiff cardboard for the base of the bag so it stays flat. The base is covered in black faux leather.

The upcycled parts are from an old backpack that my kid took to kindergarten. The backpack disintegrated, but not the straps. I used the thickly padded adjustable backpack straps on this dalek.

The last photo was taken before I added the silver parts. I wanted to show you how it hangs.
The bag is about 15" tall. The straps are regular adult size backpack straps that can be shortened to fit a child (7 yr old in the photo).

I have other Dr. Who inspired stuff here:
