I went to my favorite grab bag thrift store and filled a $3 bag with all the goodies I need to make her backpack :) (Don't worry, more items came in the bag which still keeps this project at $1!)
I have 3 pretty used and worn out bags (1 is not pictured)
One red shirt, two white shirts and one black shirt.
Batting from a pillow (also not pictured)
...oh, and my craft cat tried to eat it.
(The batting is from a $2 Walmart pillow that I tore apart. I love these pillows!!!)
...and then, I seam ripped them off. The ears were too heavy and kept just flopping everywhere.
