Cutest BackPack ever!

This was such a great time. I created 6 of them: used different colours of zippers & ribbons and glued adorable ceramic 'buttons' (bears & little girls) onto the front. Because of "The Virus" I had to make do with what I had in my various stashes...

Heading to Grandma's backpack

Loved this pattern, it was fairly easy to make and turned our really well. I didn't use tuille for the front pocket I just made a pocket out of fabric and I also made the straps out of fabric, the "Heading to Grandma's" logo was easy to apply, I decided to line my backpack so it's nice and tidy inside. Looks super cute.

Perfectly Perfect Backpack

I have been looking at this pattern for a while now, but wasn’t sure if my skills were up to par. After reading some of the other reviews, I decided to give it a try. Boy, am I ever glad I did! What a perfectly perfect backpack! The details are ah-maziing! And, the pattern is so well written with lots of tips and details, I truly believe anyone could make this gorgeous backpack. I’ve made 12 already, in beautiful bright colors, and ihockey fabrics . I absolutely LOVE this pattern!
