This design takes your standard flat drawstring backpack and adds a large oval bottom to maximize how much it can hold! As a bonus, this drawstring bag stands up while you rummage through it. Feel free to stuff the inside because the zip pocket on the outside is the perfect place to stash your phone and keys for security and easy access. The size works well for adults and older kids. (This is my perfect gym bag, my size 9 running shoes nest right in the bottom.) For smaller children, print at 85% with just a few minor modifications outlined in the blog post here.
