Been busy as always so finally getting around to a post on my backpack and lunchbox I designed/sewed last summer/fall.
I’ve always been the most interested in sewing bags of sorts so I guess a backpack was destined to come along sooner or later. I spent a lot of time looking at different ones online while designing my pattern and I eventually decided I wanted to try a roll top/dry bag style closure.
There were definitely a few hang ups during this project that made me leave it for a period of time before I was brave enough to try and move forward but after thinking about it I was always able to figure out a way to make it work.
Finished it midway through last school year so I’ve been using for a few months now so can confirm it was a successful project. In it’s short life it has survived carrying all sorts of textbooks and notebooks, been on multiple hikes and traveled to three different countries.
I somewhat regret the pinkish accent color choice but I can deal with it.
I apologize in advance for the some of the downright awful image quality.
There will probably be a long break in posts for a while now since I’m at school and don’t have any crafting supplies with me (sadness!) but I’m sure I’ll be back at it as soon as I’m home. Keep on crafting on!
