Backpackin' Boy

I tried, I really tried. This backpack made me want to gouge my eyes out though. All I have to say is this: Wyatt, you better love this pack so much that you want to sleep with it, bath with it, and keep all of your most precious posessions in it, because even though it was probably the most basic sewing pattern known to man, it was a nightmare for me.

But I must say, the fabric is just about the raddest thing you have ever seen (even though Sean couldn't disagree more). He said "get something manly". Ok Sean, do helicopters and sunglasses (!) live up to your manly standards? No, apparently they don't.

Check it:

ps. Liz and Lisset, no wise cracks, your sewing skills exceed my own. Pattern found here.

SO CUTE!! I can't believe you did it that fast! I mean seriously, you bought the fabric like 4 hours ago! You're amazing.

i LOVE that fabric-what line is it? and i like the snap you added. maybe the interfacing did make a difference-i used pretty stiff interfacing because i wanted it to hold its shape and not flop around while haven tried to access the inside. either way, i think yours is adorable and i'm sure wyatt is going to love it to pieces (literally). good job!

That's adorable! What do you mean, it looks very sturdy? He's going to love it and if your ever missing anything just look in there. Your very talented Jillie!!
