Backpack

I kept sending Ulysses to school with plastic bags and saw this backpack and couldn’t resist trying to replicate it. I just eyeballed the pattern based off of her pictures (sorry! I’m not very good at following instructions!) and it turned out really well! I forgot the piping at the side seams, but other than that I think it got pretty close. I bought some of this Japanese train fabric and have been saving it. I managed to get the bag made just as he is starting to get into trains. It was so fun putting some real effort into a project and not half-a%^ing it, like I tried to do in the first place.

Tote Bag
I set out to make a backpack but was convinced a tote bag would be better and made this, which I instantly tore apart after trying it on the little guy one time. Backpacks are much more suitable, let me tell you.

    Wow, that is amazing! You are so good at sewing these kinds of difficult looking things – and without instructions no less! I bet the little man loves it :)
