My 10yo DSD and 3yo DS both received plain colored backpacks, and we would like to decorate them but I'm having trouble coming up with ideas. I really don't have money to buy anything extra. I have an unopened pack of several different color fabric paints but I don't know exactly what to do other than just paint very basic shapes with it. DSD is easier with hearts and flowers and such but what basic shapes could I do for a preschool boy? And I'm open to other ideas to! I can hand sew just a little bit. I have lots of felt and other fabric scraps, as well as beads. Any ideas would be most appreciated!
