Backpack sewing project -

Did any of you see this free pattern on the net? I did and I got excited!! It’s called the Chloe bagpack. This is just what I was looking for!! Ohhhh – how I wish I could have used the featured project fabric . . . it is just soooo happy! Anyways, I used a shirt I got at the thrift store – here is what is left of it!

I put in pockets all he way around – even hidden ones on the sides so the kids can’t easily find my G-U-M! The only thing I have left to do is top-stitch. I wanted to be sure I had my straps the correct length before I do that – they aren’t adjustable – but they don’t have to be to fit just me. I wouldn’t say this was the easiest project I’ve ever tackled – but it is really rewarding! This would probably be much easier for someone with more sewing experience than I have – give it a try!!!
