  • Small backpack
  • Beads
  • Sewing needle
  • White sewing thread
  • Scissors
  • Keychain ring
  • Yarn (for pompom)
  • Small white pompoms
  • Hot glue gun
  • White colored pencil


  1. Using a white colored pencil, draw desired design on the backpack where beads will be placed.
  2. Thread needle with white string. Starting from the inside of the backpack, insert needle through and pull toward the front. Strand bead on the needle and thread, and press needle through the backpack about 1mm from where the stitch was started. Continue adding beads to the design, alternating the colors.
  3. To create the keychain, begin by creating a small pompom using yarn. Wrap the yarn around index and middle fingers about a dozen times. Tie a small piece of yarn around the center, and tie it in a tight knot. Use scissors to cut the loops on each end. Fluff the yarn to create the pompom shape and use scissors to trim any pieces that are too long.
  4. Thread needle with white string and tie a double-knot at the end. Insert the sewing needle through the pompom and pull the thread tight. Strand a small white pompom and several beads on the thread as well. Tie the top to a keychain ring and attach to the zipper on the backpack.
