It feels so good to be home! The boys are at football camp this week, so the girls and I had some fun playing in our pool today. While Nugget was nappying, Abby & I decided it was a good time to sew!
We decided on a simple drawstring backpack. She used a Joel Dewberry charm pack to piece together the outer bag and added a pocket to the lining. She learned how to use a seam ripper to straighten out a few crazy seams :) She is already planning her next bag and did great!
We made this bag without a pattern but here are a few free tutorials if you or your kids would like to sew one. Noodlehead's Boy's Drawstring Backpack from Khaki Pants (a lined bag), Always Expect Moore's Drawstring Backpack (lined), Prudent Baby's Drawstring Backpack (unlined), Chica & Jo's Drawstring Backpack (unlined).
