BackPack tested

During my 3 day holiday weekend I did get one project done. I made an owl backpack from the pattern I am testing for Katie.


I love this owl fabric. I made this bag from the stash. It still needs the little drawstring clamp but other than that it is complete.  I need to find somewhere I can buy bunches of the clamps because I plan on making many more of these.




It was a great pattern to work from. Katie did a really good job with it. I use my back pack all the time now and it works out really well. I can put it on my back and not worry about a purse slipping from my shoulders while I am shopping. It is also roomy enough to take a project in when I'm at the doctor's office. I had a knitting project in it and there was plenty of room for the needles and skein of yarn.

Oooooh! I love it, Robin!!!! One of our daughters has extensive special needs... the "two hands free" is a lifesaver for me :o) I'll have to add that perk to the instructions :o) Thanks so much for giving the backpack a test run!

You did a great job on the backpack--I love backpacks--but haven't had one in a long time--but I just ordered a pattern with a changeable flap--one has a snowman on it the other a Santa---but I like that 'Owl" fabric--and then there is "cat" fabric and doll fabric--and and and........
Hugs, Di

Looks great! Love the owl fabric. Does the top flap fasten down? or does it stay loose?
